Thumbs down Irregular sleeping pattern

My around 5 month Syrian hammy hasn't slept in her usual pattern. When she usually wakes up 7-8 she is now waking up at midnight or later. They lights are always off later in the day, and if they are on, its a low-light lamp.

Everything else is normal, eating, cuddling, playing on her wheel ect. But I have no idea if this is normal

Please help!

Sometimes hamsters change their sleeping schedules without much reason. Other times it can be indicative of an illness. Was this a gradual change? Or was it sudden? If she overall seems fine, I wouldn't worry about it, but just keep an eye on her

They sometimes seem to change routine for no apparent reason but it can be just the time of year, mine tend to get up later during the summer months, even when the curtains are closed they still seem to know the days are longer!

As Drago and Cypher say, sometimes this happens for no particular reason. I was going to suggest summer as an explanation, by Cypher beat me to it. Chances are, if she is getting up later in the night, she will be going back to sleep earlier in the morning.
