I don't know yet if and when but usually it's only a matter of time before i come across an unwanted hamster living in a tiny, bare cage. I wished things were different.

When i said tough luck earlier, i meant that a boy would have to put up with the pink, lol. Not that hamsters care about colours.

I realised after you meant a potential dwarf hamster. My brain fog is super bad today and I keep making mistakes. Haha I knew what you mean about the boy hamster putting up with pink.

Little Lola is so cute. I thought she had a bump on her nose but it was only a bit of unruly fur.

Omg, she is way too adorable!!! Robos have the best little faces, especially the eyebrows.

Robos don't seem to tame like other species in my experience but they are very easy to hold. Catching them is the problem. I can trim a Robo's nails easily and give them a health ceck whereas some of the other hamsters wriggle like mad.

I find that once i get a hold of a Robo they stay still for a while. Lola runs into her little cork log so i lift the log up and tip her onto my hand. I took her out to check her nose which turned out to be fine.

ohhh I never even thought of it that way! Always thought I'd see if I would get to the point where they can climb on my hand (like my other hamsters) and if not, I would just let them be. thanks for the tip!

so cute Ria, yes Comet is the same, mr zoomy hard to catch but can hold him easily,
LovehamstersOl I think robos freeze (because they are scared) when handled so easy to cut nails, do a health check etc,
Also, I found I cannot touch my robo in his cage, but I can if he's out of his cage in a travel carrier or small plastic bin, he will even walk onto my hand then.

I had a foster Robo who "played dead" when i held him. He would be quite still when i checked him over and then slowly close his eyes.

They get semi used to handling when handled regurlarly but they never seem to lose their instant reaction to run away.

I was able to scoop our late Robo Monty up with my hands and had planned to work on that with our Robo Scottie but made a mistake with his set up by adding interior tubes. He loves them and often sits in one watching, eating, washing and nodding off so i can't remove them now.

Aside from their personality, i think their set up also makes a difference to how tame they become.

I know that they exist but i've never met a Robo who would come to his door and ask for out of cage time like our Syrians and Winter White dwarf do.
