I have been pondering over the idea a lot here lately to get a pocket pet. I have had hamsters before but it has been YEARS. My tank is ready for a new pet but I can`t seem to make up my mind. Things have changed since I was little. Now there are dwarf hamsters, black bear hamsters
, teddy bear hamsters
, polar hamsters, HELP!!!! What was the original hamster? The ones that I had as a kid was the size of my palm. They were (tan and white) and dark brown almost black and white. What is the difference in all of the kinds and which was the one that I had when I was little????
