    (previously Yogi - I call him Rhino as he reminds me of the hamster in Bolt!)

    I am fostering him ( :( ) for a while, for Niki who I think will be having him.
    I love him to pieces already, he is such a sweetheart, I have never really been a huge fan of hams, but he is just an little sweetie. It's going to kill me to give him up! :eek:

    He is incredibly friendly, approx 6 months. He is mahoooosive! He is just over 150g. He is such a beautiful chocolate colour, with little white feet and a white stripe on his belly, he is just gorgeous! You can see he has long tufts on his hips too, like a little cherub!

    (He's a little camera shy!)

    He was in the tiniest cage! :O He is now in the Ferplast Furet plus. He can't get through the bars and I have made a hammock halfway down so he doesn't fall far when he drops off the bars! he is loving it! I adore him, mum is like, don't get too attatched!

    annie he is lovely but i'll just worn u i have had the furet plus cage so know how wide the bars are and a hamster can easily squeeze themselves through the smallest gaps and i would say be careful keep an eye on him.

    he is rather big for a male....does he have the goolies?:D
    when i took on gizmo the old owner said he was male she had no nutties when i came to look,yes he was a she!:rolleyes:

    I have watched him like a hawk in that cage yesterday and he could barely get his snout through, he really is huge.

    I was just thinking that, do boys have prominent bits?

    thats ok then.
    and yes benny my male has huge goolies,if u pick him up so his legs are dangling u should be able to see two baked beans :D

    or if he's not that handable try looking at his back end to see if he has a bulge nr his little piece of rice tail.

    he is super stunning,niki i'm not sure annie wants to give him up :eek: :cryin: :D

    Haha, I think it's safe to say that he is definately a she...! I will keep calling him Rhino and just pretend he's a boy :D He's far to butch to be a girl ;)
