My hamster Brownie
by Maria Gauchi
For my birthday my parents gave me a hamster which is called Brownie. I named it like that because its colour is brown. My cousin Victoria has a hamster too, so I phoned her to give me some information about hamsters.
Information about hamsters
The hamster grows up to 36cm long. Wild hamsters are far bigger than domesticated ones. In its natural state a hamster digs a burrow up to 24m long, where it hibernates for most of the winter. When active, it pawls farms and grassland at night, gathering seeds and nuts in its large cheek pouches.
