Golden Hamster

No, this is not some amazing god-like statue of a hamster made of gold, this is just another term for the most common hamster – The Syrian Hamster! The Syrian or golden hamster gets it’s name from the colour of their coat which is a brown/golden colour.

There is no difference between a hamster with the normal golden coat, or a completely different coloured coat, like Alfie’s (my hamster), which is a grey/fawn/white mix. To stop myself from repeating things that I’ve already written about, is you want to find out more about this adorable breed, please visit my Syrian hamster┬ápage.

This name change often confuses people but there’s nothing difficult here! They’re the same animal and are all amazingly cute and fantastic pets for both adults and kids!
