ROBOROVSKI

Robos

 

 

   

Roborovski (Robos) are the smallest of the dwarf hamsters and originated in Mongolia.  They can live in colonies, but excessive overcrowding may result in cannibalism of young if they feel there will not be enough food or space.  This also applies to other dwarf hamsters if overbred.

Be careful if keeping a few together as you can become over-run by them if you're not careful.

    They are great fun to watch as they are very active and entertaining.  Due to their size and speed they are not ideal for small children who want to handle their pet.  They are generally very healthy hamsters.

They are best kept in tanks with lots of toys, such as tubes and other objects that they can climb in, over or through.  They set up great assault courses and in order to get from A to B they will tend to go all round the cage rather than going direct!
