Question Do hamsters get jealous?

I have two Russian Dwarf Hamsters, and I think one is jealous. My little one, Vin, she seems to get upset whenever I handle Nugget. She will sit alone in a corner and give me those sad eyes, then face away. She also won't go talk to her sister when shes upset like this.

The only thing I can think to do is handle her more often, or handle them together. Is this normal behavior? Will she be okay?

They get along really well together, and sleep together despite having separate beds. Could she just be missing her sister?

i think its best to handle them together more often, with pairs its better to keep them together as much as possible really.
She could be getting jealous (I know my Mishka hates when I go near her cage without getting her out to play), or just missing her sister.

I have seen that Vin is incredibly attached to Nugget, but Nugget less so to Vin. She is far more independent, going around and doing her own little thing while Vin follows, trying to be as cool as her sister.

I will defiantly start to handle them together, then. Don't want any sad hamsters in my home.
