When are hamsters most active? I know that they are nocturnal, but I am curious about the time frame that they are awake and moving around the most.

I think all hamsters are different. My Syrian doesn't get up until 10pm and goes to bed at 7am. Another Syrian I had in the past got up at 7pm and was in bed in the early hours of the morning. Weaver, my Robo, is up at 9pm and goes to bed at about 5am. They all have a little sleeping routine of there own I have found

Like buttons said, every hamster is different. One of my hams used to wake up around 8 and go to bed around 5:30 am. My one hamster Duncan wakes up around 6 and goes to bed around 6 am. It really varies from hamster to hamster

I think it depends on the Hamster, one of mine is more Crepuscular than nocturnal He wakes up about 7pm until 6am give or take. My Chinese Hammy only tends to come out for a few hours to eat, drink, play on the wheel then back under the substrate (She's old.) and my other one wakes up about 10pm-4-5am.
