New Little Girl~

Hello hello~
I went to a feed store for some food/hay/bedding and they had hamsters. I ended up taking a little girl. Shes not much bigger than Ramens kits. So maybe 30 days.

Shes very beautiful but the feed store staff that was present were the hay movers couldn't tell me what her colors or genetics were. Thus she is only a pet hamster. Not a breeder.

The summer staff only has two jobs: move feed and move hay.
They dont deal with the animal expect feeding and cleaning. There is normally 1 person who is educated on staff, but he was VERY busy trying to get a Golden Macaw to chill out.
They prepare during the summers heats for the winter times when the store is a main source of feed and exotics.

She was in a tank with Normal colors and Platinums.
The Platnuims were tanish creme (almost Dove) and some like this little one looks like Dark Beige or Argent. What do you think?

Oh, so what color do you think she is? These photos are little gray btw.

Yes its a campbells. Shes most likely a normal platinum.

OMG. Well UHM. I dont know if its girl or boy anymore....
I keep looking and there are THREE HOLES. Im not joking...THREE.

It has...two small lumps at the very end of the anus (testes?), one large hole in the middle looking like a vagina and a tiny hole where the male penis should be. Also... it might have a scent gland. Have yet to find nipples, doesnt mean there not there.

Are there such things as genital mutations or hermaphrodite hamsters?
O_____________O I wish I could show you guys what I mean...

This is so WTF. What makes it even wierder, I cant make judgment by personality either. IT is sweet as heck and has never tried to bite but chases boys away in a girly fashion.
I held it like for 15 minutes going, "QwQ w-what? what is this?". Oh man guys, im so weirded out right now. I love my new it, but oh mah gawd.

Oh my god she is soooo cute. I wanna get a hamster soon . Congrats!


You put a baby in a crib with an apple and a rabbit. If it eats the rabbit and plays with the apple, I'll buy you a new car.

Well as far as her gender goes......I took her to a vet...she is dominatly female...but she still has the useless attached flesh of a male. UH.
So my little Bloody Mary is a hermaphrodite? Well ok.

SHES MY FAVERIOT NOW. XD She hops onto my hand and likes to flatten herself out on my bed to look like a cotton ball.
Shes great.

OMG, hahhahaha, she's a hermaphrodite!

But she seems so social.. I wish I could get a pup, because I got mine at 3-4 months old, and I dunno if that's too old. D=

Its not really. They are weaned at 22 days and ready for homes at that age. But since they are small most wait until 1 month.
They can live to 3 years.
