In DetailShape: Chinese Hamsters are nickname rat-like because their share resembles a young rat (or a mouse). Unlike the typical dwarf hamster, they are slightly slimmer and longer than the typical barrel shape. Their faces are more pronounced compared to the shorter snout of a hamster. And their tail is longer than a typical hamster.
Length: They could be 4 to 5 inches, at least an inch or two longer than the other dwarves. (This length is measured with the length of the tail considered. So the actual body sized is about 3-4 inches.)
Agouti Coat: Their natural color is gray or brown on top and white on bottom.
Markings: A dark stripe down the back of the body called a dorsal stripe.
