I have a beautiful hamster from hell. His teeth are at least a 1/4 inch long...probably MORE!
and yes he has used his powerful jaws to sink all of the 1/4 inch into my fingers. He just loves it when I bleed.

On the other hand I have had quite a few other rodents and they were all very friendly and liked attention.....

When hamster from hell expires I am going to get two rats. I already have a breeder in mind......and I love the fact that they usually enjoy some sort of attention. They seem very smart and trainable.

They have very diverse personalities, some can be really cuddly and human oriented, while others are more solitary and would rather jump all over you than be held (Balou is the latter). You have to be quite careful about what you let themhave because they are allergic to quite a few different things. But overall, they are really fun as long as you have the time to get them out of their cage and play with them. I have Balou out for at least an hour a night to run around my room.

BIG! lol The bigger the better, they are very active. The minimum cage size is usually set a 2'x2' . If you go here, I have the Townhome.
