Default Hamster Survey

Hi,

I'm doing a study on how hamster act based on cage size and enrichment. If you could fill out this survey, that would be very helpful. It should take around 5-10 minutes

Please share this with anyone you know who owns a hamster!

Hamster Cage Size, Enrichment and Behaviors Survey

Thanks!

I've filled it out based on a Syrian hamster without health issues. I have four Syrians, three with health issues and two Robos. One Robo is a very self contained man so questions would be difficult to answer but may do another survey based on the other later.

I think that a lot depends on the individual hamster's personality and sometimes their gender and species as well.

This survey is quite basic.

Hi Ria P, thanks for completing the survey. I know that some of the answers may vary depending on a hamster's personality, but this survey is just to get a general idea of how the average hamster acts based on their cage size and enrichment. I am aiming for a large sample size, so the results will be averaged out. If you have any ideas for another question, I would be happy to hear it

I was wondering if another question could be about how often the hamster has out of cage time and is this in a playpen or free roaming or something else? And for how long each time.

As something that could work with in cage behaviour. Eg a hamster in an 80 cm cage with daily out of cage time night he content. But a hamster in a 100cm cage with no out of cage time and insufficient enrichment, might show stress signs. If that makes sense.

Yes, I think out of cage time would be more relevant than the question about holding a hamster. All our four Syrians want out of cage time but not one of them wants to be held.
