As you know,I have been interested in a hammie and have been researching and everything.Also I wanted a black bear syrian...

I went into the pet store to get some crickets for my geckos and decided to look at the black bears...they are $25!!!!! WHAT THE! Now I knew they would be more then the normal syrians,dwarves and teddy bears....but didn't think THAT much!

I really doubt I will be getting a black bear now...as thats the only place to get them!I really don't wanna pay that much.So I will have to look in the papers when I eventually decide on my hammie...and will have to settle with a regular syrian (most likely)...:rolleyes:

Wow, i have never heard of a hamster being over $10 here.
Look in the paper, and call your local rescues, I'm sure there is a sweet hammy waiting for a loving home.

Over here in the UK we don't have all the different names (like black bear, fancy hamster etc they are just plain old syrians here) we just break the breeds into two catagories. We have hamsters (syrians) and dwarves (russians, chinese etc...) and the price only varies between the two depending upon where you go. Syrian hamsters here tend to work out at around $7 and dwarves maybe slightly more $8-$10 each ;)

I will have to look in the paper,as there are NO rodent rescues AT ALL here,thats why I want to start one.Even the SPCA and Humane Society never has small animals,I contacted them a couple years ago to see if they had rats,but no they didn't.They only take dogs,cats and sometimes rabbits.And one time a potbelly pig.So it will be the papers for me!

Check with your local vets offices too. Sometimes people will post flyers to rehome their little ones.
