In DetailsAs noted before, the Winter White is the only hamster that changes colors due to temperature drop and also exposure to light. With more light and warmth, the natural color will stay longer and return sooner. The opposite is true as well. Changing months usually begins in September and can last till March.
(Note: Often times, hamster owners can find themselves wondering what type of hamster they have. A Winter White Hamster can look very similar to white coated Campbell or Russian Hamster. If it has a white coat and red eyes, it is a Campbell. Only Campbells have the combination.)
