About Dwarf Hamsters

 

Types of Dwarf

Campbell's Russian Dwarf - This is the most common type of dwarf found in pet stores. Shops will often call it 'Campbells' or 'Russian' dwarf. They have a dorsal stripe running down the middle of their back (not seen in albino campbell's) this can sometimes disappear as the dwarf gets a little older or silvers.

 

 

Winter White Dwarf - These are sometimes called Siberian dwarfs. They are very similar to the Campbell's Dwarf and are sometimes mistaken for them because of their dorsal stripe. A dorsal stripe of a Winter White appears more thicker than a Campbell's In the winter their coat can turn into a white colour except for their dorsal stripe. Although this doesn't always happen in captivity.

 

 

Roborovski Dwarf - These dwarfs are the smallest and fastest of all dwarfs available to buy. They do not have a dorsal stripe like Campbell's and can easily be distiguished from other dwarfs by their white eye brows.

 

 

Chinese Dwarf - The Chinese is not as common as some dwarfs that are available. They are known as the 'mouse like' hamster because of their long tail. This also makes them easy to tell apart from other dwarf types.
