Snickers is a female short-haired Syrian. We've had her for about three months now. My husband and I went to the pet shop and we saw quite a few cream and white striped syrians, and then I noticed way back in the corner was one little black bundle who was asleep. We knew she was the one for us. She is a real character. She enjoys building deep, fluffy nests and burrowing into them until she is invisible. She also likes to climb your chest and nuzzle up to your neck. Her favorite treats are lettuce and apples. She is the sweetest hamster you will ever meet.
