What would happen if you put a male dwarf hamster in the same cage with a female teddy bear hamster?

I have both and they both seem pretty lonely in there separate cages and I want them not to feel alone anymore so yeah, would they fight to the death or would they mate? or would they get along?

Please do not ever put these hamsters together. Syrians are solitary animals and will not put up with other hamsters in their territory - even other Syrians. They will fight and try to kill each other.

Dwarf hamsters and Syrians are not compatible. They are completely separate species, so no they would never attempt to mate. Both species are perfectly happy on their own in their own cages. Syrians *must* live alone... in the wild they only ever come together for mating, but they don't stick around.

Putting another dwarf with your dwarf will just stress him out. Trust me, your hamster is perfectly happy living alone, especially since he/she is used to it. Adding another would cause stress as someone is invading his territory. The same goes for playdates - hamsters just don't have them.

Don't worry, your hamsters aren't lonely. They will be perfectly happy if they never see each other or another hamster. All they need is interaction with you.

Dwarfs aren't mean at all, that's a false stereotype.

Either fighting or pinkies (baby hamsters) neither if those are good though! Breeding shortens the females life also it's heartbreaking to give up the pinkies and Ed you would have to give them up! It is very unsanitary as well. Just keep them I their cage they are fine.
