Hi. I have hamsters. Have had hamsters most of my life in fact. Right now we have 3 we have had quite awhile and a new little guy, Anakin. He is a replacement for an elderly one we lost...belongs to my 7 y/o so being nice is important. All of ours are sweet little cuddle buns. Except little Anakin. He is MEAN!!! I am not letting my child even hold him right now because he bites EVERY TIME! I am working on getting him nicer.....lots of attention and snuggles...but is there anything else I can do to encourage him to keep his teeth to himself. I am getting tired of being bitten!!! LOL He is a Siberian and I have never had an issue with them being nasty. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Editing this......that should say he is NOT a Siberian, he is a standard hamster.......I really messed that up. Yeah, all the Siberians I have had were EVIL except for one.
