The Syrian hamster has an inquisitive personality and must be provided with adequate mental stimulation or they have a tendency to escape. They are incredibly docile and enjoy being handled and interacting with their owners.
Checking your hamster's bottom can tell you a lot about a hamster's health. Discharge, blood, faecal matter, or moisture could all be indicative of health problems such as infected wombs, bowel problems, and wet tail. Hamsters, particularly Syrian hamsters, can be affected by the disease known as wet tail.
