What is the life span of dwarf hamsters?

I want to know how long my dwarf hamster will live.


Answer by  Janet73 (78)

The most common dwarf hamsters that are sold as pets have lifespans of one and a half to two and a half years.


Answer by  dreamsweeper (85)

Most hamsters live a few years, however I think that a dwarf hamster would be more likely to live about as long as any other very small rodent, such as a mouse which has the life expectancy of two years.

From birth until death, a healthy dwarf hamster will live around 2 years. Some have been reported to have lived about 2 and a half years, but that is not normal. Keep the hamster provided with a supply of food rich in nutrients and a clean water supply and the little guy will live his long and healthy life.

A dwarf hamster's life expectancy is usually eighteen months to three years. You can improve your dwarf hamsters chances of living a long life by providing it with healthy, clean food and water, and keeping it in a a clean cage with a cage mate or two.
