This Old World rodent is related to Voles, Lemmings, and New World Mice. There are many Hamster species, classified in several genera. They are solitary, burrowing, nocturnal animals, with chunky bodies, usually short tails, soft, thick fur, and large external cheek pouches used for holding food. Hamsters feed on grain and other plant matter and are serious agricultural pests in many parts of their range. The Syrian, or Golden Hamster, of Eastern Europe and Western Asia, is familiar as a laboratory animal and pet.

Asthma, allergic rhinitis and allergic conjunctivitis occur frequently in laboratory workers dealing with Hamsters and in individuals keeping these rodents as domestic pets. Copyright Copyright © 2006 Phadia AB. Source: ImmunoCap, ImmunoCap
