Default Throwing poop?

So I'm trying to get Mattias to know me and my scent and I have my hand in his cage . Well he reaches down and grabs a piece of poop and chucks it at me Not once but many many times. What is that about I've never seen a hamster do that before.

Default Poop throwing

That is bizarre :P I have a very tidy hamster who throws poops out of the enclosure all the time - and the cat has had a poop in the eye a number of times It really cracks my partner and I up to see Boobs slink off all miffed after another poop attack I don't think it is aimed at her exactly but she does tend to get in the way of flying poops a lot

It was definately odd, I'll tell you that He hasnt done it again, but I did give him some nice peanut butter treats and a nice clean cage

That does sound a bit odd! Maybe he's sharing his scent with you ?



Lucky ham getting peanut butter - my old Mitz used to love that, I'd put a little inside a bit of celery, she'd get it on her nose and head and spend the rest of the evening licking it off!



Hope he continues to behave himself a bit better!

Default Lucky hamster indeed

Oh I love doing that for me nevermind the hamsters

A step further is to dip the peanut butter coated celery in sesame seeds or similiar

I've had this happen once or twice with Biscuits. I wouldn't describe it as "throwing" but more like tossing.underhand.

I have also heard about this, it sound really funny but in retrospect it isn't when you have to clean it up. Maybe you could put his cage in a box to catch all these poops that are flying out? He could just be cleaning up after himself and not realising what he's doing? Or he could be secretly trying to expand his territory!!
