Default Bald Hamster?

Hello!! I知 rather new to the hamster game and I thought it was rather strange that my hamster (around 1.5 years old) has no hair at all, and he was born that way! I got Sid from a friend that couldn稚 care for him anymore and I was just wondering if this could mean he was unhealthy in some way? I値l attach a picture for reference so you can see his wrinkly little self!

Default Re: Bald Hamster?

You do get hairless hamsters as it is a specific genetic mutation. You can also get very nearly hairless hamsters who have been bred by mating satin coated hamsters together and this is the breeders fault and very much frowned upon. As long as he is healthy and behaving normally then I wouldn't worry about it if he has always been this way.
