Hmmmm...thats a tough one.I haven't had a hamster since I was a kid,but I did have a gerbil last year,she passed at the age of 3.
My gerbil was extremely hyper and didn't like to be handled.She was friendly,just not handable.She chewed ALOT and was very destructive.She chewed more then all of my mice and rats put together.
Hamsters bite often and seem to have bad tempers.I am always hearing stories of grumpy hammies...I don't remember too much about them,as like I said last time I had one I was a kid.My sister has a hammie named Button and he is pretty cute and sweet.He was a biter at first,but with love and attention he has become very sweet.
I think I am going to say I like hamsters better,just because my gerbil didn't have the temperment I like.I usually like affectionate animals (like rats) and my gerbil was anything but affectionate,she didn't care about me at all.
After rambling for so long...I pick hamsters.
