This picture is captioned WW
sunfire hamster - Google Search
If it came from a shop it's most probably a hybrid.

thanks for your info white, and is it bad to house like a winter white with a robo together as long as they are the same sex? like 2 males? or would the different species fight do you think??

I wouldn't. From what I've read here it seems that unless the hammies are siblings they aren't likely to get on. Being different kinds altogether can not work well.

Even siblings can fall out and have to be separated.

Like Whitehologram said, housing different species together is definitely a it no no! It would never work out.

I also find it strange that WW's are called sunfire hamsters. I would never have guessed what species it was if Lougarry hadn't of said

Wut? No, nonono, don't house different species together!

As for "sunfire" hamsters, that's just pet shops trying to sell something because it has a cool name. They'll be hybrids of some description, with all the potential health problems (diabetes, neurological issues, etc) hybrids are prone to. I'm pretty sure it's not just a Winter White by another name, as WWs only come in three colours and anything that could be called "sunfire" is not one of them.
