Default Chinese hamsters

Can Chinese hamsters be happily housed by themselves?

A lot of pet shops are still selling Chinese Hamsters as being suitable for living in pairs but on a whole they are very much a solitary species and are much happier with their own space.

Unfortunately they're a species that don't always give you much warning that they're going to fall out with their cage mate and when they do fall out, they can really be quite vicious towards each other so it's best to keep them on their own from the beginning.

As mentioned above, Chineseys are solitary and shouldn't be housed together (just as Syrians) as they often fight anyways. Luckily enough, no hamsters really seem to truly enjoy having company really. They tend to only come together for breeding in the wild anyways and thus are best kept seperate in captivity.
