With home improvements going on at new neighbour's Rodney's house, Edwina is doing a good impression of the nosy neighbour next door.

Edwina's coat has almost completely changed colour. She was a very dark grey when i got her in January and now she's a light grey with a pale undercoat. Fascinating. Does this often happen with dwarf hamsters?


Sorry Edwina for the unflattering photo of you with full pouches that makes you look rotund like Ozzy.

Very cute.

Ah right. I thought that only happens with pure bred dwarfs and not with hybrids. Mind you, i've never fully understood the who's who in the dwarf world and couldn't tell a winter white from a campbell dwarf.

Hybrids can sometimes change colour, it all depends on which genes they inherited from each species. I think some black hamsters can also go silver with age.

She looks lovely in her new colours! It can be a bit confusing, sometimes the WW genes will cause them to become lighter in winter then they change back in spring but a lot of hybrids (most of those I’ve had) change colour as they age & don’t change back so it’s a case of wait & see!

Thank you all. There's a big advantage of her new coat. She's easier to spot on the dark grey carpet when she free roams and decides to hide somewhere late at night when i want to go to bed. Usually she's busy eating seeds another hamster has hidden earlier.
