Default Re: Hairless Hamsters

As far as i know hairless hamsters are bred by breeding hamsters that are not compatible genetically resulting in hamsters without fur.

It's unethical, cruel and should not be supported. Their life expectancy is shorter and they are more prone to illnesses.

It's like purposely breeding hamsters with genetic defects.

I used to want skinny pigs because i had no idea how they were bred and believed that they were a separate breed like the teddys for example.

It's a typical example of unscrupulous people trying to make money at the expense of the animal.

I may not have gotten all the facts right because my memory is bad but that's the gist of it.
