Exclamation Posture

Wasabi is hunching over her food...is this normal for a female, cinnamon, banded, long-haired, Syrian hamster?

Do you have a picture or a video? Does she display any worrying symptoms? Sometimes a hamster who is hunched over can indicate they're in pain, but bending over food can also be a Norma behavior. A picture would really help

I have pictures and a video but I am still kind of new to Hamster Central and don't know how to get them attached to the reply.

Vids you need to upload to Youtube then post the link here.

Photos you can upload using the go advanced button below the reply box, go to manage attachments & a pop up window will allow you to select & upload.
You can then use the little paper clip icon to add your picture to the post or just leave it to appear as a thumbnail in the post.
Alternatively upload photos to somewhere like Photobucket & post the link here.
You may need to resize your photos before uploading.

Question Re: Posture

Is it normal for her heart to beat really fast when she does this bending over thing?

It's hard to tell anything much from that photo of her as it looks like she's moving, if you can upload a video to youtube then post a link here it would probably be easier to tell.

If she's been continuing this behavior for such a long period of time, and she overall seems fine, then I wouldn't worry about it in all honesty. It's unlikely it's an issue as a hamster will usually deteriorate quickly if they're sick. Like cypher said though, a video can help us put your mind at rest

I can't really do videos because my mom doesn't want me to have a YouTube account so I can't do videos. I tried to put a picture but it came out kinda blurry.
