Darlek and Whizzer
At last some publishable images of the last two hamsters. This is Darlek and Whizzer. Not exactly sure which is which, and I'm not sure they do. Their names have changed so many times since they were born. These are the two brothers of Bertie.
Friday was hamster clean out day which is how we managed to get pictures of them. These two boys are usually huddled in a ball together, quite friendly for boy hamsters.
When the cages are being cleaned, the hamsters go in their balls and are quite happy rolling around the floor.
Bertie seems a bit under the weather so she wasn't very active. All these hamsters are beginning to show their age, so we will have to keep an eye on her.
The boys usually go in the big hamster ball together, and they have learned that if they go in the same direction they get there quicker. It is quite funny to watch them trying to get over bumps together or go around obstacles. On the wooden floor, they can go quite quickly, so sometimes we have to have a hunt the hamster ball to get them back in their homes.
Usually, the first thing the hamsters do when they go back into their homes is to sit in their food bowls. It doesn't matter if they are hungry or not, they have to get the peanuts before the other gets them.
