Description

Binomial Name: Phodopus roborovskii

The Desert Hamster is native to much of the Middle East including China, Mongolia and Kazakhstan. As their name implies, they thrive is desert landscapes with sand and little vegetation. They live in burrows and are able to conserve water very efficiently.

The Dessert Hamster is omnivorous. It mostly eats seeds, grains and plant matter. However, on occasion it will eat insects.

During the winter they stock pile food into their burrows and stay underground for the entirety of the season.

They are most known for being popular pets and are sold at most pet stores.

Description

Proviene del suroeste de Siberia y las regiones del este de Kazakhstan, Manchuria y Mongolia, con climas por lo general fríos.
Usualmente se suele confundir con el hámster de campbell, debido a su proximidad genética. Sin embargo, finalmente se ha aceptado como una especie independiente, ya que ejemplares no híbridos presentan visibles diferencias morfológicas.
Desarrollan su actividad durante la noche, aunque suelen tener cortos períodos del día de intensa actividad, sobre todo las hembras. Los machos suelen ser menos activos y sólo salen de día para buscar comida y agua.
