Smile Meet Bíp!

Hi all! This is bíp, my female syrian.
I have had a lot of trouble taming her, unfortunately she's in the ikea detolf at the moment and her travel cage is the Alexander. I'm not sure of her colours though, so if anyone can help then that would be great [IMAGE

Bip is very cute! Great name too - any reason behind it? She looks like a chocolate or sable banded to me, but I could be wrong. I'm sure others will advice.

As for taming, have you tried giving her toilet paper to nest with which has been in your sleeves for a few hours? And sitting with her in the bath tub or a play pen to interact?

Hello and welcome to HC, Bip is very cute

I don't really know anything about colours but I'm sure someone will be able to help with that.

Welcome to HC
I'm not so good on syrian colours either but I think April may be right, whatever colour Bip is a little beauty

Hi and welcome to HC! Bip is ABSOLUTELY gorgeous, and I also believe that she may be a chocolate banded or sable banded as well. To be sure though, I suggest that you PM one of the breeders on HC, and they will be able to give you a definite answer concerning Bip's stunning coloring. All the breeders are extremely knowledgeable and helpful so I'm sure they would love to help you know more about your sweetheart.

As far as taming is concerned, I would definitely suggest the tissue trick and bonding in a playpen scenario, too. These have helped me with my Eros and many other members on HC with their hammies as well. Hope that this helps.

I look forward to getting to know more about Bip and definitely seeing more lovely pics whenever you have a chance. Eros sends a high four to her new friend Bip!

Hello and welcome to Hamster Central.
Bip looks very sweet and is a beautiful colour. She has a cute name too!
I can't help you with her colouring as I don't have much knowledge on colours, but you can create a thread called "what colour is Bip?" and I'm sure a someone will be able to be able to identify her colour for you (this is what I do myself)

I'm happy you found Bip as he will be very much loved. His coloring is very attractive, whatever it turns out to be. Look forward to updates on his thread. Congrats
