Campbell’s dwarf hamsters (Phodopus campbelli) originate from Mongolia, northeast

China and southern Siberia but are nowadays bred worldwide and kept as pets. They are

usually more active during the day than the golden hamster which is equally

popular.

Adult Campbell’s hamster reach a body size of eight to ten centimetres. The small

rodents feed mainly on various plant seeds and occasionally on small insects. The

hamster in turn is preyed upon by raptors and steppe foxes.
