I'll list the ones I can remember had a fair few hams over the years.

Syrians:
Sassy - Female - 1 day before her 5th birthday.
Smokey - Male - Around 4 - Got wet tail, went in to hibernation and died coming out.
Tiger - Male - 3
Storm - Male - Around 2
Pepper - Male - Around 3
Lucky - Female - 2
Sky - Female - 2 years 2 months
Spirit - Around 1.5 years
Izzy is currently nearly 2 Hoping she goes on as well as Sassy did.

Dwarfs:

Sebastian - Male - 2-3 years - Blind ham.
Cream & Nutmeg - Female - 5 months. - Had an accident with an escaped snake
Creme - Female - 1.6
Caramel - Female - 1.5
Jasmine - Female - About 2
Esmerelda - Female - Almost 3 - Old age
Batty - Female - 1 year 8 months
Tiny - Female - 1 year 2 months - Inbred pup from Batty
Diesel - Male - 1 year 5 months - Inbred pup from Batty
Scruff - Male - Around a year - Inbred pup from Batty
Scoober - Male - Around a year - Inbred pup from Batty
Demon - Male - Around a year - Inbred pup from Batty
Mack - Male - Around a year - Inbred pup from Batty
Sniff - Male - Around a year - Inbred pup from Batty

I've noticed that over the years hams lifespan has dropped a fair amount, out of the hams who's ages I can remember my first ham and her two brothers lived the longest. Whether thats because they were from a private breeder not a shop I don't know. But e have never had hams that lived that long since.

Cooper - Male Syrian - 21 months

Cause of death is unknown tbh? He went from being fine to his body gradually shutting down over the course of 20 minutes.

Some of these 'just died' ones do sound a little like hibernation. It's not that well known that hamsters do hibernate... maybe someone could put a thread in the healthcare thingy?

Yes hamsters can hibernate, but I doubt these deaths were due to that... What if they died in the summer?
