Meet the Teddy Bear Hamster, AKA Syrian Hamster. Teddy Bears are the first hamsters to hit the pet market. After their wide success, the dwarf hamsters were introduced.
Syrian hamsters are larger than the dwarf hamsters. The have the most comprehensive coat variations. They are calm and easy to handle. But they also like their own space and time alone from both humans and other hamsters. If you want more than one hamster, you really need to consider getting a cage for each Syrian hamster.
Health. Teddy Bears usually live around 3 years. They are prone to getting both diabetes and cancer.
Breeding. They are active around 7PM. They will breed 3 to 4 times a year and usually produce large litters. If you're planning to breed and hoping to get the largest litter, Syrians may have a dozen pups a litter.

Social. They are solitary hamsters unlike most of the other hamsters and are highly territorial. Keeping them with other hamsters will cause them to stress out and weaken their immune system.
