Nibbles the Hamster

During this week our hamster got out of it cage during the weekend so when we got back to school we had to try and find him. We spent half of our class trying to look for it but could not find it. So we put the cage on the ground and hoped that Nibbles would eventually go back into it by itself, which Nibbles did.

In the wild hamsters live in deep underground homes which are called burrows. Hamsters hide in there burrows during the day to avoid being caught by predators. In the wild they primarily feed on seeds, fruits, vegetation and sometime they will eat burrowing insects. When they are in captivity most people will feed them vegetables, wind-blown seeds, grains, fresh fruits in addition to the food pellet or seed mixes. Some of the hamsters favorite foods include broccoli, celery, parsley, sprouts, cauliflower, kale, spinach, banana, peas, blueberries, grapes, mango, peaches, carrots, cucumber, pears, turnips, and strawberries. However, these foods must be provided in a reasonable quantity since excessive food can cause diarrhea. 

Hamsters mostly live in the prairies but they originated from Syrian Desert in 1797,which were also the first hamsters to be documented, they were known as the golden hamsters.
