Transcript of Dwarf Winter White Russian Hamster?
By: Chloe Smith
The hamster's favorite foods are nuts, seeds, fruits, and vegetables. The vegetables are carrots, corn, sweet corn, cucumbers, and broccoli. The fruits are apples, pears, and cut up oranges. If you give them wood to chew on, they will chew on it until the wood is almost completely gone. They also like to eat sweets but if you give them too many sweets, then they will most likely get sick.
If it is cold in your house you may want to put a heating pad under the cage or put a small patch of warm cloth inside their igloo. In Siberia when it gets hot normally they turn dark, but sometimes they turn a peach color. When it gets cold in Siberia they will turn white but it is different with every hamster because some only have patches of white and some turn all white. When it is very warm in your house you can put ice cubes in their water. Hamsters love it when it is not hot or cold it is right in the middle.
