Colorful Hamster Names

We know hamsters come in many shapes and sizes but they are also very colorful, too!


Colorful Names

Hamsters naturally come in colors like shades of brown, gray, and white. They can blend into their natural environment more in these colors and possible keep them safe from prey.

But breeders have defied the norm and many are able to breed hamsters of all kinds of colors. From Pearl to Sapphire, and Dalmatian (pattern) to hairless. Pet hamsters are a colorful bunch!
