This is Henry is a longhaired sable syrian hamster. Many petstores would call him a teddy bear hamster. When he sits up, he does look like a mini bear. I adopted Henry from our local APL on Sunday May 13, 2007. I have no clue on his age. He is a sweety and doesn't bite. My BF fell in loves with him also at the APL. At first he didn't want a hamster as we already have 4 gerbils, he saw Henry and melted. No clue on his age but no taming was required. He absolutely loves to come out at night. His hamster ball is his absolute favorite toy. He can run in it all night. He even makes turns! His previous owner must have had in a hamster ball before. I have to get a picture of him in his ball. He also loves shoulders.
