Default Confusion??

Good Morning guys!



I just have a quick question. I bought the most adorable female dwarf hamster yesterday and I am unsure of what type she is. She is a mix of grey, white, and a tiny bit of tan. Her under bottom is all grey with a strip of white. And her feet are white! Hence her name: Socks. Could she be a winter white?



I was just wondering if anyone could help me out here! I truly appreciate the information!

The Campbells and Winter Whites almost look the same in my opinion, the only difference I ever noticed is their noses seem a bit more rounded off like the dwarf roborovski. I think it would be hard to know unless we saw a picture...



Sorry I couldnt tell you more.

Interesting - could you post a picture for us to see?



WWs have a different body/head shape to Campbells, although hybrids are rife in petshops especially in the USA from what I can tell.



I can think of a couple of options colour-wise - a photo would be good.

Looks like a Campbell's Russian Dwarf Hamster - definitely not a Winter White. The white on her tummy is typical of Self hamsters and if there is any more on her back and shoulders this shows she is either Mottled or even a Platinum depending on how widespread and solid it is. It really is hard to see, and as for what actual colour she is (Blue, Dove, Lilac etc.) I would hate to hazard a guess from the picture sorry. What colour are her eyes? If you get a chance to get any more photographs please post them, I am quite curious to get to see what colour she really is.
