Higgins Vita Garden is the proper US diet for all species, not Sunburst. Sunburst is loaded with dried fruit that really isn't great for hamsters of any species to be getting on a daily basis - fruit generally isn't something they'd naturally be eating.

That's absolutely amazing, they're much smarter than I bargained for before getting one! Has your new Syrian stopped with the nipping yet? I'd love to see some pics or videos of your ham too, they're too fun!
There's a video of his first day here in the cage on his thread (Raffy's Adventures) I have a couple more but haven't got round to sorting them out yet. I wore I glove the last couple of times. So he climbed on my hand on the glove, but tonight had a nibble at that too. So he clearly tests or "nips" anything he comes across to see if it's edible! It'll take time for me to be able to pick him up I think but he'll accept being stroked on the back (with a non gloved hand).

Sounds like Higgins Vita garden is the one to get then.

Thanks for sharing, he looks like he's settling in great! Going to keep an eye on that & Pip's thread, Raffy looks like an explorer. Loved the video of him, that's one happy looking ham

As far as the food goes, I'll gladly take the suggestion and give that stuff a whirl. The hamster taxi idea worked great too.

Little Pearl actually didn't care for freeroaming one bit. It seems she just likes spending time together in that corner of her enclosure. Going to slow things down and stick at her pace.

Without fail, she's always up at 3pm here for a "midnight snack". I offered her a bit extra and on my hand for once, seems there's no love lost for the scary outing.

Out and about
Taxi!!!
Make up snack
