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.
- 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.
- 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.
