Default Hopping hamsters?

We took a slow-mo video of our little Gordon running on his wheel and around his cage, and realised he doesn't actually scurry like we thought, but actually hops like a bunny haha. He's a little roborovski, so is normally too fast for us to see how he's moving, but he'll take a few steps like a normal hamster, and then start hopping.

Is this normal? Or have we just got a very special little hamster on our hands? :') haha x

I have 3 robos & they don't hop

Sound super cute tho, can you upload a video to You Tube then copy the link to the forum so we could see the cuteness?

It doesn't sound normal! I'd be curious to see the vid too.
