Can Dwarf Hamsters Live With Regular Hamsters? For owners who want to keep two or more hamsters together, Dwarf hamsters are recommended. These species can be kept in pairs or groups as long as they are given adequate space. Most Dwarf hamsters will enjoy company from members of their own species, but Syrian (and sometimes Chinese) hamsters must be kept alone.
Do dwarf hamsters eat other hamsters? Syrian and dwarf hamsters are known to be cannibalistic against other hamsters in the habitat. While dwarf hamsters can sometimes get along with cage mates, they can also become aggressive. Robo hamsters thrive in colonies, but they must have enough space or they too can become cannibalistic due to overcrowding.
Do hamsters get along with other hamsters? They are social creatures and get along well with other dwarf hamsters, so you can keep them together with others in a cage once they have been properly introduced. You should ideally house them with others of the same gender, because if you put males and females together they will breed rapidly.
