is the russian dwarf hamster and campbell hamsters are the same?


  • Favorite Answer

    Thanks Cloud Nine I consider myself to know a lot about Hamster and even I have had a lot of trouble knowing for sure what species and breeds are which.

    Syrians are easy!

    But In the Dwarf family it goes like this.

    Russian,Chinese,Robo as being the main three I think people know are being different. But you also see these names from most to least common.

    Winter White




    Probably others as well…

    And I know that some of these are the exact same type of hamsters or very close hybrids etc. But your answer Cloud Nine cleared some things up however it’s still a difficult thing to remember correctly. I personally have only had the campbell dwarfs I guess. And yes they can be aggressive etc. But it all depends on there personality. If your really luck, know what your doing and have a good cage setup most of the problems with caging them together or handling them can be prevented or reduced. Sometimes they are very friendly and it’s kind of scary!

  • That’s a tricky question to answer. There is the Russian Winter White dwarf hamster and then there is the Russian Campbell dwarf hamster. Both are in the Russian and dwarf groups, however they are still different species. Most pet stores, despite claiming to sell purebreds, usually sell hybrids of the two species. It can be difficult to tell them apart unless you learn to recognize the subtle differences in their appearance.

    Usually if you go on a pet store website and it says Russian dwarf hamster, it is a Campbell.

    Winter Whites and Campbell’s have very different personalities, in general. Winter Whites tend to be docile, easy to tame, and more responsive to handling. Campbell’s can make good pets as well, however they are highly territorial and thus often display cage aggression, making it a good idea to wear gloves when taming them.

  • No, as the russian dwarfe hamster speaks russian and is very small.

    The campell hamster likes camping ane bells, does not speak russian and is an average height hampster.

    Do I have an over crowded tank?

    Answers Favorite AnswerDepends on the dimensions and the filter. I'd say it's right at the limit and certainly no more room for more fish. However, if you get a water testing kit and check the nitrate you'd know for sure.I would cut down the zebra danios to or so and get rid of the pleco. The Pleco may seem fine but they grow large. Instead of a Pleco add some Cory catfish, they would make a nice addition to your tank and are also a great clean up crew. Oh yeah and if you think "well I've had my pleco for a few years and it hasnt grown to fast, I'll just keep it" don't. That's just it's growth being stunted. I had a common Pleco in a gallon at one time for about years, he didn't grow much until I realeased him into my gallon pond. After just months he had grown more then ever before. My point is keep the zebra danios and not the pleco as harsh as it sounds.i hoped this helped and good luck!Source(s): Personal expirenceThe Pleco will need to be in a bigger tank probably within a year.

    hi, I hope you can all help me!! I am trying to persuade my mum and dad to get me a pet i think if a dog was cheaper they would get me another one!! thanks xxThere are always free to good home ads in the papers. Adopting from shelters are usually fairly cheap.The problem is not the intial cost. Dogs are expensive, regardless of breed. Food, grooming, vet visits, neutering, shots, tags, toys, leashes, dog bed, collars, training, are a few of those expenses. Then if the dog gets sick, more money.The cheapest dog would be a dog you rescued from somebody who can no longer care for their dog. On craigslist, there are tons of people who have to find new homes for their dogs because they're losing their home. Many are offering their pets as free to a good home. There are some wonderful dogs out there that don't deserve to be put down.I'm guessing your parents realize the responsibility of owning a dog which means shots, grooming, walking, training, boarding at times, flea prevention products, heartworm prevention, healthcare. Maybe you could ask them in what ways you could help with the dog that would make them Read more

    My cats lower abdomen seems hard and slightly swollen?

    My cat is about a year old, she has not yet been fixed, but we are going to soon (shes a rescue cat we recently got). She was in heat about a week ago and I noticed her lower stomach, towards her "lady parts" was swollen and seemed hard, I thought that it had something to do with that. But shes out of heat now, and her stomach is still hard there. She seems like maybe she has lost a slight amount of weight, but I'm not 1% sure. Other then that, she seems fine, no other problems. Any thoughts? Should I take her to the vet sooner? Her appointment is in two weeks.2 ✅ Answersyou're able to have her check out once you carry her in to the vet. i does not recommend getting her vaccinated at that component inspite of the incontrovertible fact that. Vaccines are in elementary terms meant for healthful animals. (It says so maximum suitable on the bottle)Yes, call the vet and see if you can get it moved forward. It could be nothing, but if it isn't, it's the kind of thing needing immediate attention.Source(s): I am an animal care technician, and have lived Read more

The collar looks like is suitable for dog neck. how & what should i do to make this collar fit to my cat's neck? ANY IDEA PLEASE??✅ Answers ? Best Answer Get a new one, return the other one or give it away to a friend or sell it. You can not make that fit your kitty without it being dangerous so get a new one. - Chosen by Asker You don't. You take it off your cat because it's a choking hazard. I've never heard of an LED collar for a cat so you probably bought a dog collar. Keep your cat indoors where it belongs and if you want ID for it get it microchipped. Simple, buy a new collar from a store and make sure it is able to fit. Source(s): Don't buy that kinda stuff off the interwebs. Return the collar and buy a collar that fits your cat or if you can afford it get your cat microchipped.
