The animal my group chose to do is a hamster and the scientific name for it is the Cricetinae.The name of this hamster is Nibbles. My goal for Nibbles is to live for normal life span for a hamster, stay healthy and will learn how to be a friendly and intelligent hamster. A hamster’s life span on average is 2-3 years this counts if it’s in the wild or in captivity. If it’s in captivity the hamster can live longer or shorter, it all depends on the specie, genetics, diet, exercise, living environment, illness and the quality of care you put into your hamster. I was interested in this hamster because I never had one before and I wondered what it’s like to take care of one,like how much maintenance they need to take care of one hamster. Here are some pictures of the hamster after the first week of having it.
