Cool Biggest Hamster Record

So, I was talking to Quigley’s breeder and she told me that her biggest hamsters were almost 400g!!! (Syrians, obviously).

This got me thinking about how big the World’s biggest Syrian hamster might be. I can’t find any official record on the internet, but how big is the biggest hamster you have ever come across?

The biggest on HC in recent times was Bec's wonderful Neptune. He had a thread of course. If I recall he was over 300 about 320 but I stand to be corrected.

You're right Coco, Neptune was just over 300g.
My past ham Twinkle weighed 250g.

Interesting. I wonder if any of the breeders on here have a 400-gram-er. I can't imagine how big they would look!

Must correct Neptune's weight, 350g was his heaviest. I had to check back.

Thanks TL, wouldn't like Neptune to be under weighed! And the girls are usually larger. Twinkle was a lovely size.

I know that Tickertyboo have some quite large hammies. They're quite the "hamfull"!

The largest I've had was 280g, but that was a pregnant female. My girlies tend to finish growing anywhere from 220-240. Not quite as big as some of the giant squishies in the UK.

So, are the hamsters in America generally smaller than in the UK? Doesn’t look like Quigley is going to be huge in comparison to many of his breeder’s hamsters. She said she expects him to reach 220g - 250g.
