Feeding Your Hamster

It's always great fun watching hamsters feed. Their instinct is to cram their huge cheek pouches full, and then rush to unload them in their nest, or other favorite snacking place.

Providing them with all the nutrition they need is very simple, but there are still things about your pet’s diet that all responsible owners need to know - including what not to feed them!
