Post Is my Syrian Hamster long haired or short

Hi, I have had my female Syrian hamster for about a month now, I am pretty sure she is a long haired Syrian as my sister has a short haired Syrian in her room which has less fur. But I want to be really sure.

Can anybody tell me? Thanks in advance. Images below

How old is she? If she is fully grown, I would say short haired. Some short haired hamsters do have longer fur than others. However, if she is very young, she could turn out to be long haired as the fur does get longer with age.

She should be pretty much fully grown, then. Long hair usually becomes apparent from a much younger age, so I would say she is SH.

Oh ok. Thanks so much, I was unsure as long haired seems to have put growing fur however my hamsters fur seemed to be slightly thinner. Thanks so much
