Default Yet another "is this a winter white" question.

Hi all.
Newbie owner....covid quarantine and 2 kids at home for 70+days so I gave in and a few weeks ago got 3 hamsters. 2 are robo sisters (don't judge...we bought them all from a local pet shop) who share a cage and 1..what I think is a winter white or could be hybrid. She is sold in CZ where I live as simply *dzungarsky* so it's not clear if she's campbell or winter white. I went on google and looked at stuff like her dorsal stripe etc but I wanted some community and expert advice.

Aww she is lovely. She is most likely a hybrid however she is mostly a Normal Winter white in colour.

She is gorgeous
All pet shop Russians are hybrids no matter what they're sold as, they may have the appearance of one species but are still hybrids.

Thanks. As I did more research I started to think she was a hybrid....but strange thing is today I noticed a line of lighter fur on her back which is opposite of what winter whites do right? They should be getting darker in the summer?

Sadly I think it means she wont live long....so should maybe prepare my kids as they adore her a tad but more than the crazy robos partially bc she is willing to be pet and held.

For sure next time I'll try to find a breeder in Czech Republic where I'm located.

Thanks.
