So ... how long is a "hamster year"? Like, dog years are around 7 to one human year, aren't they. For hamsters it would have to be about 40, given they seem to live on average about 2 years.

So Holly is now a middle aged bachelor of 40!

Why do you think the ages are so variable? I mean to die of old age at about 2 and equate it to about 80 human years, would make 1 human year about 40 hamster years. But then that would make the ones that live to age 4 one hundred and sixty hamster years old! I wouldn't be so insulting to say the ones that live past three and four have better care...we all know that even with the best care our hams can slip away unexpectedly. But I would be interested to know why there's such a huge variation at which death occurs naturally.

Oh, and not sure if I put Oakie, but in case not: Male Syrian, 2 years, 3 months, possible stroke.

Joey - Male syrian - just over 4 years old. Died of old age.
He came from a local pet shop. My sister got a female Syrian, Rachel, which lived for just under 2 years from the same place.
