Talking What do hamsters think about when running?

My nekkid ham is always running on his wheel. What could be going through his little ham mind? I always joke that he's getting ready for a marathon. What do you think?

I always thought they were thinking they was escaping out of their cage. Mine would run for a bit then stop to have a look, then do more running and it would carry on. I felt a bit sorry for them to be truthful.

Maybe they're like the hamster in the trailer for Secret Life of Pets 2: "I run and I run and I run and I get out, and I've gone nowhere. NOWHERE!"

I think they run because it's fun usually and for exercise. But they can also run fast in their wheel when they're stressed or scared by something - and that must be a "running away" instinct. I have no idea what they think about - but they seem happy doing it (when not stressed!)

I never knew about fur-less hamsters until I saw this thread. I just finished reading an article about them at Hamster Central. Here's the link: The Hairless Hamster - Hamster Central WIKI

They must be the equivalent to the more common skinny pig, the hairless guinea pig, created in a lab. So cute!!!

Never thought about what hamster thinks when he's running on the wheel. Maybe thinks the same as a human on a treadmill "do I really have to run that long to burn off one single biscuit".

I always have that idea, maybe too much pinky and the brain as a child.
Sometimes she just stairs in deep thought, the goes burrowing.

She also sits on her wheel with a nut, just eating then half-ass a spin, then naps.
Relate too much of this at the gym somedays
