Question Running too much?

Hey so i have two little Russianís and one of them the Rufus (the littlest) he runs on his wheel all the time heís awake more than heís asleep it feels like. From 9:30 in the everning to 9:30 in the morning he will be awake on his wheel (with quick naps here and then) I was just wondering if this is normal all my hamsters now and past have been more on the chill side and like to have a run but no where near as much as Rufus. I think it seems like a weird question as most of the time people ask if there hamster runs enough! The last few days he has been running even more, so yeah not sure if Iím over thinking or not!

Default Re: Running too much?

How long have you had him? They can get quite obsessive with the wheel to begin with but it does usually settle down a bit after a while, it does sound as though Rufus is going a little crazy with his wheel.
Is he ok other wise, eating & drinking normally, not losing weight?
If he is ok then I'd just wait & see how it goes.
What's his cage set up like, does he have plenty of other things to do, lots of substrate to dig in & a good size house?

Iíve had he for about 3 months, heís drinking and eating fine, not losing weight. They have quite a bit cage itís a diy one, they have lots of substrate and lots of hides so hopefully he just grows out of it! Or Iíll have an Olympic sprinter on my hands!
Thank u for the help x
