Chinese Hamster –
Grow between 82 and 127 mm in body length (tail length 20–33 mm).
Weigh 1.7 grams at birth, then as they get older can weigh 30–45 grams.
They live two to three years on average.
It’s body proportions compared with those of other hamsters, appear “long and thin” and they have (for a hamster) a relatively long tail. Males have a relatively large scrotum, therefore females were generally kept as pets and males used solely for breeding and research purposes, until scientists started using other rodents, albino mice and rats.
