Default My hamster is making new noises

Hi all,

My hamster has started making noises in the past week or so i haven't heard him make before and i'm concerned. He is a Roborovski hamster. He doesn't appear injured or anything and i'm unsure what it is. The noises are very low squeaking noises and only happen from time to time. I've uploaded a couple of videos onto YouTube if someone can have a listen and help. You'll probably need to be right up the speaker to hear or be wearing headphones.

PS i know the video he is at his food, but he makes the noise everywhere.

How long wasn't he making the noise for? Some hams are just more vocal than others, I couldn't really hear properly but as long as he's healthy and acting like normal it generally isn't a concern.

He is very sweet though and looks a lot more like a winter white than a roborovski!

He does look like a Russian (most likely a hybrid) & they can be quite vocal sometimes, as long as he's otherwise ok it's probably nothing to worry about.

Some hamsters like to talk! He’s probably telling you about his tiny hamventures

Your hamster is a Russian dwarf not a Robo, he’ll be a russian hybrid though which means he’s part Winter White and part Campbells.

From the video your cage looks a little small, Russian dwarfs need a minimum cage size of 70x40cm but bigger is always better and a lot of hammies thrive in 100x50cm cages. I recommend the Duna Multy (70 x 40cm) or Criceti 15 (80 x 50cm) for a Russian dwarf.
