This little lady came to us at about 6 months of age. She was the oldest hamster in the pet shop and was always overlooked. Twelve days after we had her, she gave birth to seven babies! It was our first experience of baby hamsters. She reared them all and we kept two of them, Clover and Spike. The others were all found suitable homes. She was very fond of walnuts and would carry one around for ages until she found a 'suitable' place to hide it. At Christmas, she liked to steal the Wise Men from the nativity scene under the Christmas tree. She also liked to steal the contents of the other hammies' Christmas stockings.
