Default Ariana

I'm looking at hamster obsessively I have to admit, but I found one I like. She is a red eyed Russian dwarf. I like the Russians cause they are active and easy to bond with. I know I told myself no more Russian hamsters. She's not as cute but a good personality and very active from what I can tell so far.

I'm still not totally sure on colours but red eyed lilac maybe.
She looks very sweet!

I think your right Cypher from what I saw on the internet too, it said red eyed lilac.

Hope so! I'm trying to get better at recognising colours!

Would it be better to get an actual coat type rather than unspecified coat types? Maybe less chance of illness? Probably no way to know I'm sure?

I don't think it would affect anything if hamsters were from the same litter. I'm not too sure though.

If it isn't a pedigree Russian then I think the risk of illness would be the same whether they are a specified colour or not. That's just my logic though, not anything scientific.

I see what you mean that if they were from farms whether they have a pedigree or not isn't going to affect anything. The pet store where I bought her from had 3 other cage mates from different litters. She was the only solid color.

I agree you can't tell anything much about hybrids just from their colour, it is unusual (here in the UK anyway) to see a self coloured one like that but I imagine she will still have very mixed genes.

Well done for adopting her anyway, I can see how you couldn't resist!

I looked at pretty much all the surrounding stores & came up with nothing. Then I went to Pet Supplies Plus for the 2nd time & must have missed her the first time around. She might get fluffier as she ages. That's what happened to Cinnamon & Koala.

I wonder how common this color is in the states? I think I saw one this color at another pet store awhile ago.

PSP is the same store I bought Chloe 2 yrs ago.
