Golden Hamster (Syrian Hamster) is a kind of hamster born in Asia. Due to its very high reproduction rate and strong adaptability, it can be raised everywhere. Raised in a good environment can survive for 2-3 years.
The Golden Hamster was officially classified as a pet after it was introduced to the United States in 1938 and belongs to the rodent category. It looks like a bear and weighs 0.2 kg as an adult. It was introduced and reared in Jiande, Zhejiang, China in the 1990s. The docile personality is among the first hamsters to become human pets.
Morphological Characteristics of Golden Hamster
The color of the larva of the Golden Hamster is obviously different from that of the adult, but the coat color will become more and more beautiful with age. The Golden Hamster is not only long and charming, but also very active. The Golden Hamster was the first human pet.
Female Golden Hamsters are 15cm-20cm long and weigh 90g-150g, males 15cm-18cm, weigh 80g-130g, and weigh 0.2 kg; their tail length is 1.53cm. The most primitive (in nature) colors of Golden Hamster are golden brown back hair and off-white abdomen. After years of artificial cultivation, there are more than 40 different colors, and yellow body hair is the most common. Body hair includes short hair, long hair, satin hair, and curly wavy hair. There are two types of Golden Hamster, and there are bright and non-bright hairs.
It has a larger face than other hamsters. Eye colors are pink, red, deep purple, brown, black, etc. The number of Golden Hamster is the largest among hamsters and the size is also the largest. Shorthaired Hamster have very short fur, covering their entire body with dense, velvety hair. Shaggy Hamster look fluffy when they are young, but they are soft and densely long when they are adults. The satin hamster is covered with satin-like hair. Under no circumstances should two satin hamsters mate, because this will make the offspring have less hair and eventually become a nude mouse (not a nude mouse in the true sense, but almost no hair ), so satin wool must be matched with non-satin wool Hamster. Curl Hamster have wavy curls, and curls are recessive genes.
