Question First-time Robo owner!

Hello all!

I'm happy to announce that I brought home my first Robo today! His name is Pumpkin. I previously had a Campbells, she peacefully passed away in her sleep last month after a long, two-year life. I don't have much experience with Robos, any tips you guys have would be great! Also, I'm interested in learning about any specific health concerns that affect Robos.

Thanks in advance!

Robos are like syrians and not really prone to many species specific health issues

However... Robos are also often very, very fast (I'm guessing you noticed ) and difficult to tame, so you might need to be quite patient with him. They do make great pets though

Yes I've noticed he's VERY fast! My last ham was tough to tame as well. This little guy seems extremely chill so far - complete opposite of my last ham.

Its great that he seems chilled, if he is then thats a good start in terms of eventually taming him

Hello luxbear. Your little guy is adorable. I love his little face peering out of the igloo.

Yes, very addicting! If you get bitten by the "robo bug" and decide you want another, I have babies that are ready to go to their forever homes in 2 weeks or so. I live south of Boston!

Do they get along well with each other/in the same cage? I noticed that this lil guy had two bros with him, but they weren't getting along.
