Default Colour lightening

Hi guys I have a question, I own 2 dwarf russian hamsters (I presume from the same littler) one is light tan and white. I have noticed today that his fur seems to be much lighter and closer to white in places. He is healthy and happy so I know he isnt ill and he is only a youngster so its not age related. Anyone know why this happens? Thanks

I adopted a RCD argente & his fur turned from Cinnamon to a light tan color? His eyes also turned from bright red to dark red? I think it's normal for fur changes to take place.

Are they pet shop hybrid hams? Three of mine have all changed colour quite noticeably with time, no idea why, it doesn't appear to be seasonal it just happens!

Thanks for the responses. It could be that they are hybrids, I got them from Pets At Home so I dont know their parentage. Its having no ill effects on him I was just curious about it.

If they're from P@H they will be hybrids, changing colour doesn't mean there's anything wrong & it won't affect them it's interesting to watch over time though!
