Winter Whites



    These hamsters look very similar to Campbells but in fact they are smaller and their colouring is different.  Winter Whites tend to be a dark grey colour, whereas Campbells are often brown - having said that, you can get black eyed white and platinum Campbells.  They can live in pairs of the same sex from the same family.
    Despite their resemblance to Campbells, they are less territorial, friendlier and easier to handle.  Never mate a Winter White with a Campbell as the Winter White female is likely to encounter difficulties during the birthing process as her babies will probably be too large for her to give birth to.
    They do not have a history of diabetes as Campbells do.  Their diet and housing requirements are, however, much the same as Campbells.
