Question Hamster nightmares

2 of my Russian Dwarfs, Misty and Buttercup, both red eyed whites seem to have always had what i call nightmares, now these two in particular are very different to all my other hamsters in that they have never been tame, no matter how much i have tried to tame them, they don't like to be held, they don't like other hamsters they don't like to come out and any kind of interaction involving hands will make them try and bite (I have to be very quick and skillful when it come to cleaning out and refilling their bowls etc.) so all in all they are both a bit strange yet I love them anyways, and just let them have as much to keep them entertained in their cages as possible.

Anyway since I have had them, both randomly while they are asleep (I have checked) do a weird croaky sort of scream. has anyone else experienced this? none of my other hamsters do it!
10 Russian Dwarfs: Gale, Snowy, Patch, Nibbles, Pickle, Toffee, Buttercup, Berry, Mocha & Cookie. 4 Chinese: Dash, Lightening, Thunder & Lillie. 7 Roborovski's: Peach, Crumble & 5 babies. Also: 2 rabbits, 3 guinea pigs & many fish!!!
Always in my heart: Dusky, Miles, Cassie, Saphee, Lexie, Bonnie, Terra, Athena and Misty

Default Re: Hamster nightmares

My syrian has just done this. Literally 5 mins ago.
I read in another thread that they can have nightmares. He seemed to be running and chewing in his sleep yesterday, I guess, like humans, some hammys have a more active asleep brain than others.
