Default Re: Hamster cleaning ?

Yup, scent glands, all normal..you may sometimes see a dark spot under on the skin if they get really wet around it.

This may make some of you gasp but I actually do just a full clean... monthly! I use quite thick substrate of horse bedding that is cardboard based..he poops in his house but as the layer iis deep it is never mouldy or smelly when i come to cleaning.. ive found the more often you clean, the stinkier they get as they keep marking
