Lilia is an easy going young female syrian hamster who is approximately between 6 and 8 months of age.Usually syrian hamsters live up to 3 years. Syrian hamsters are nocturnal but may wake for short times during the day. They generally quite good-natured and easy to tame and handle. They have a reputation for being nippy, but that is usually due to lack of handling or trying to handle them during the day when they would rather be sleeping.

Syrian hamsters are solitary and territorial. They should always be housed alone. They may tolerate other hamsters when they are young, but by the time they reach 8-10 weeks old, territorial fighting usually starts and may be fatal.

Syrian hamsters should be housed in as big a cage as possible. They are large active animals and need space to move around. We recommend that the minimum size of cage for a Syrian hamster should be 75cm x 40 cm  x 40 cm. (29 ½ inches x 15 ¾ inches x 15 ¾ inches) or at least 20 gal tank.

Syrian Hamsters are omnivores. This means that they need both meat and vegetable elements in their diets. In the wild their diet consists of grasses, seeds , and the occasional insects. These needs can be met in captivity by feeding a good quality hamster mix, and fresh vegetables. A little cooked chicken or live mealworms can be added to the hamster’s food a couple of times a week. Syrian hamsters should never be given citrus fruits as these are too acidic, but can be given a wide variety of fruit and vegetables.

Adoption fee for syrian hamsters is $10 each
