Question Question about a Female Black Bear Hamster

I just bought my gf a hamster for V-day cause she always wants one. I got her on Tuesday and she seemed to be quite friendly considering her shock. But yesterday when i went over to my gf and I tried to hold her she bit me, to to hard but still she bit me.

How long does it usually take hamsters, mainly Black Bears, to settle down and get use to their new environment?

Depends on how much peace and quiet you give her. Leave her totally alone for several days, with a nice place to hide in and sleep, and lots of darkness. Then start talking to her and offering treats. Days later get her in a big tube and let her walk out on your hand when she wants to.

Never (for now) grab from above; never surprise her - I always knock on the wall of their habitat so they know I am there.

Mine got pretty tame in ten days- 2 weeks.
