Ghost is such a character and most certainly is a determined little guy. I'm sorry that taming has been difficult but at least it is going better now. Just keep doing what you are doing and I'm sure he will be tame in no time. He certainly appears to love his sleepy time. I laughed at Rads@Home, too.

I think my favorite pics of him thus far are the one where he is playing peek-a-boo with you early in the morning and the last one where he is being defiant by not coming out of his bed for playtime/taming time. These pics show his character perfectly and he looks absolutely adorable yet with so much spunk. I also loved his latest videos especially of him tossing his poops in his ball and him running in his wheel using slow motion, lol.

Ghost is growing up so fast and is as handsome as can be. I love his blazing red eyes and his extra large ears. What a character!

Bon Soir mes amis,
This evening, I have managed to get some quality time with Ghost he has had a good session in his ball and some taming time with me, he is getting there though he is not keen on being picked up, I have to scoop him up with my paws then he doesn't seem to bad.. There are a few pics from my phone o Ghost's Instagram account which is.... ghost_the_hamster
I have also managed to weigh the little dude, and at 12 weeks he is 115grams, which seems pretty reasonable me thinks.
Lastly grabbed some shots with my proper camera of the elusive Ghost.......I shot these at a very high ISO so I could work with available light instead of using flash and spooking him too much,

Ghost at the treats bowl....



Ghost and yet another pea.....



Ghost basically posing for his fans...........



Ah the big black camera thingy..........

Absolutely stunning photo set, Rads.
I adore Ghost!
My partner just leant over my shoulder and asked if it was a white walker hamster (game of thrones reference)

Beth,
From the pics you would not believe it but he is technically a golden banded..!
The most pale banded ever but there you go.
He is very difficult to get exposure right for his colour too...!
Having not seen GoT I can't comment on that reference...

Just another one of Ghostie, this time thought I would give this the old style gritty and grainy B&W treatment.....

Such pretty expressive pics Rads.
Pic 1 'This is my dish'
Pic 2 I'll start with the pea, I love peas'
Pic 3 ''What do you want now?
Pic 4 'Do I have to repeat myself?'
Good to hear things are progressing, maybe he feels safer being scooped up, he'll feel more supported that way.

Gorgeous set of pics as always, Rads. Of course it always helps that you have an amazingly photogenic little hamdude who is quite stunning, too. I absolutely love the pics; they are so detailed that you can almost feel like you can reach out and give Ghostie a cuddle. It's so surprising that he is a golden banded; you can hardly see the faintest shade of color variation in the banding in some of the pics. He is SO gorgeous, or should I say handsome, lol.

That little face peeking out of his wheel gets me every time & he's the perfect model for the B&W treatment!

Great to hear that he is warming up to you. It's wonderful that you are able to be so patient with him, and I know it will pay off

I think 112g is good for his age. I've checked Quigley and Mushu's weight records for you to see what they were at 12 weeks old. Quigley was 148g, but he is a breeder ham. Mushu, who was from P@H like Ghost, was 116g - so pretty much the same as Ghost.

Beautiful photos. Love that one of him with the pea in particular. And has someone been having a nibble of his wheel?

Folks here is a shot from last night, Ghost was being in-cooperative with my camera phone so only managed a few like this, but as sayings go..
