.. i wonder.. do hamsters actually think they're going somewhere when they run round and round and round in those noisy little wheels of theirs?

Do u think they're looking for a way off it? (well they are quite silly)

Or are they in fact quite health concious, and trying to work off a few sunflower seeds?

Craven would be the man to ask, he uses hamsters for slave labor to power the entire site . . .

I don't really have an answer to your post, but rats are smarter than most dogs, and some will run on wheels, and I know they aren't doing it to get out or because they think they're going somewhere. I think it's just a boredom thing. Hamsters travel very far every night out in the wild (I think it's 8 miles a night, but I haven't read anything on hamsters in a long time, so that's probably false) and they NEED excersize, they crave it I think.

As with any other animal, temperment depends on the breeder. That's why you don't adopt from petshops and pisspoor 'breeders'. Those people don't care about the animals they reproduce, only the money those animals can put in their pockets.

Most likely on the thread about a biting rat. Wink I personally breed 'fancy' rats (siamese, true hairless, dumbos, rexes, lilacs and blues) and I like to get the truth about breeders/rescuers vs. petshops and poor breeders.

I had many hamsters in my life and I really believe that the dumb creatures think they are going some where. They seem so intense like they need to make some sort of important meeting or gathering.

I had one hamster that was so dumb he used to run on the outside of the wheel. We also put in an old toilet paper tube in his cage to play with. The dumb thing stuck his head in it and got it stuck. He was walking around the cage, banging the tube all over. He was unable to get it off - we needed to assist him.
