    Omg I literally just had the brain wave to make this post too and saw your post!
    Bubbles is super cute! I love his colours!
    Your cage is the large one from [email protected]? I had the exact same one and recognised the decor! I also bought the exact same carrot toy for Marbles when I got him too...But I didn't realise you're not meant to wash them so it got ruined by me within 1 week!

    Here's a of picture of Lord Marble in his lordly ways...He got a pice of wood shaving on his head after he dug a bit around his cage for foods.

    Here's one I snuck up and took one of when he was snoozing with max zoom on...

    I made a point to my sister that my hamster sleeps cute since she said her dwarves slept ugly, sleeping with their mouths open and their teeth showing XD

    Cage cleaning definitely takes the most out of me...It's super heavy and who in this universe can do that all in 30 minutes?!?!

    I have 3 Syrians, one male (Ghost, white) and 2 females (Athena, burnt orange and white and Lilith, choco brown and white.) I have also got a male robo called Niko whose pied markings.

    Please know that robos are rarely like that. They're normally very skittish and shy. Not happy to be handled typically. Niko is a bit special in that sense so please if you get one have the mindset of you won't be able to hold them they're more for watching. Then anything else is a bonus. Niko was a rescue and feral when I got him :( if you get one from a responsible breeder who handles them regularly from a young age then it'll be different. So please don't think they're all like Niko because that's not the case. Scientists claim that they are untameable

    That's why I went for a Syrian because they are a bit more tameable...Or so they say!

    Has marble bit you?
    Ghost attacked me when he met me 2 months ago (where has that time gone?!) So he's not 100% there yet.
    Lilith was in rescue for a year and I'm foster so that gave me a essentially a already tame ham. Still had to work with her as she was skittish, but after a month she's out of that.
    Athena was rescued and handled a lot too. She was very thin and constantly weighed so had no choice but to accept the hand.

    It takes time but it's very rewarding. Niko and Lilith can be handled by my nieces, 8 and 5, but ghost and Athena will only accept me at the moment. But that's ok. They are education tools almost for my nieces and they love learning all about them. Whether itd be behaviour, right food and bedding. Importance of suitable housing. Fresh water and a nice environment for them. They also learn how to hold them properly and stuff live that. They're mesmerised by them.

    Learning to respect animals great and small is the first step. Boundaries is the next. Creating a mutual understanding is the third. Once the bond is formed it's plain sailing from there on
