Hello all! My name is Kelsey and I'm 19. Yesterday I purchased my first hamster. I have previously owned rats, so this isn't my first rodent...however I still feel like I have a lot to learn. Googling led me to this website and it looks like a lot of fun so I figured I would join. My hamster is a female shorthaired syrian. After looking at the syrian hamster colors page, I am inclined to say her color is black tortoiseshell, but I am not positive. Perhaps someone with more knowledge regarding coat colors could let me know. Her name is Rubidium (Ruby for short). I'm a biology major in college and a huge science nerd, so don't laugh at her name! Anyway, I am an animal lover. I have a four year old male yellow lab named Finnian who is my constant companion and best friend. I also have three cats. Sapphire (female, 11), Curtis (male, 8), and Floyd (male, 3).


Here are some pictures of little Ruby :)

Welcome to HH, Kelsey! I'm Clare. :) Ruby is so adorable and her coloring is gorgeous! :D I'm not that good with coat colors however, so I can't help you with that. :) I hope you like it here! See you around the forum! :D
