My hamster, a black Syrian named Nick, loves his tubes. He dug a really deep hole underneath the mouth, and now he sleeps there all the time, curled up in a puffball. (Or, as my sister and I prefer to call it, "curled up if Puffball Mode") Is this strange? Have you hamster exhibited this sort of behavior? Thanks!

Hi HamsterDragonPlace!

My hamster, Rhia, use to do almost the same thing! But it was behind her hideout, and behind her wheel. The wheel was simply because my petstore gives their hamsters flying saucers and her owner before me probably had a 4in critter trail wheel. So this was the first time Rhia had a real and good wheel, and it probably took her some time to get use to it. As for the hideout, that one I'm not sure, but when I cleaned her cage, I put in a different hideout, and she finally started sleeping in there! So, I came to the conclusion that the old hideout was simply too small, or Rhia just disliked it.... In all, it might be that your hamster doesn't like the hideouts, or he just prefers to use that area. Another thing, that could be happening is that your hamster is cold, and used this to warm himself, maybe try checking the temperature in the room.
