Hamster Picture & Video Gallery
European hamsters are definitely not as widely photographed or filmed as their smaller pet cousins. But here are a few excellent pictures and videos. (If you have original work you'd like us to include, please feel free to email me.)
European Hamster - In Details
The European hamster carries all the signature hamster features such as pouches, the hunch stance, barrel shaped, and adorable look. I like how their whitish-pink paws really stand out against their black and gray coat.
Whether these creatures should be good pets or not, it's undeniable that they are a beautiful breed!
Length: On average, they grow as tall as 11-14 inches!
Agouti Coat: An adult European hamster has a mostly black coat. Younger ones will have a grayer color. Their undersides are all black which gives them the name Blackbellied. They also have brown and white patterns on the face and body which gives them a distinct look.
Markings: Brown face with white colored pouches.
Other Coat Colors: no recognized colors since it is not normally kept as a pet
Color Patterns: n/a
Coat Textures: n/a
