Hamsters come in lots of different shapes and sizes, colours and hair textures. Which colours and textures are available depends on the species of hamster in question - those species that have been bred in captivity for longer periods of time often have a wider variety of forms to choose from. To avoid confusion, we’ve divided up the colour lists on a species-by-species basis.
Some examples of Syrian hamster colours are as follows:
Hamsters are born in a wide variety of colours
- Normal (Grey)
Winter Whites come in a number of different hues
- Normal (Wild Type)
- Dominant Spot
Some Campbell colours:
