Is it possible to breed a ww dwarf hamster with a Syrian male hamster? I'm just wondering. (I'm not going to breed any hamsters though).

I wouldn't breed a dwarf female with a larger male. You could be causing problems for the mother, possibly even her death and that of the babies who might be too large for her. Better to cross a larger female with a dwarf male if that's the cross you want.

I'm not breeding them. I was asking because I'm curious.

I see. Well, curious is good. I learn a lot of things just because I'm curious.

As long as they're the same species - (they're both hamster types) - then, yes. (:

Robos, Winter Whites, Campbells, Chinese, and Syrians are all different species.

They are all types of hamsters - therefore, they're the same species - they just are variations of the same species. (a.k.a. of the same family.)

Not true. They are all in the Rodent family, but they are each a different species. Dogs are all the same species but different breeds. Humans are all the same species. Hamsters are different species... kind of like the difference between a horse and a donkey.

It is yet still possible, that, indeed - two species of the same family CAN be bred, correct?

The only ones that can cross are WW and Campbells, but attempts are not always successful, and can lead to weird health problems. The systems are just too different to have overall successful breeding.

@Quester2011 - lest you be a very, very good competitor and debater. You conceal yet a very admirarable amount of knowledge.

Why thanks. I own three robos, and get most of my hamster information from other hamster owners and personal experience. If you're more interested you can check out www.hamsterhideout.com ... it's a forum for hamster owners and is full of info.

Only if you wish for a civil war.

No. They are completely different species. Also the Syrian will probably kill the WW.
