The History of Hamster as Pets
History of Hamsters
At least 1 in 5 people have had a hamster as a pet. We all fall in love with these little guys and take them home with a cage that falls apart and little to no knowledge about the little furry guy at all. I tell you what you learn alot in the first couple of days. But do you know who actually decided to make hamsters the pet we know today.
Who Discovered Hamsters
Around the 1930's a israeli zoologist was working in the Syrian desert and was digging and found these little guys in the sand burrowed. So he caught them ( which would be a random thought to me to grab one) He brought 3 to 4 hamsters back and successfully bred them and raised the babies. In the late 30's it was actually a British Zoologist that named them what you know today as the Golden Hamster. That zoologists name was George Waterhouse. In 1945 they were introduced into the pet trade and that is were the frenzy started over these little guys and girls we call hamsters.
