23 Hamster Behaviours 🐹

Have you ever wondered what your hamster was trying to tell you? Well, today we discuss all of the different behaviours your hamster may display and what they mean, from squeaking to their tail sticking up to scent marking we talk about them all!

Thank you to everyone who submitted clips for me to use in the video as examples! I know many mentioned being a bit embarrassed to share their clips with bad behaviour but do know showing these behaviours is extremely helpful and educational to others! Please do not bother anyone mentioned in the video that shared their clips, many are old footage back when they didn’t know proper care (and have since learned!).

Remember if your hamster suddenly changes behaviour it’s best to see your local exotic vet as it can indicate something is wrong.

Ps If youre wondering why Waddles wasn’t used as barely any examples thats because he’s a CIA Robot and they clearly forgot to program him with regular behaviours as simple as grooming 😂 /j
