My syrian hamster is all of a sudden being VERY jumpy! Also, he is really greasy? Whats wrong with him?

I've had my hamster for over a month, he is a boy, and he acted totally fine and calm up until now. I just reached my hand in the cage to pick him up, and he jumped around like crazy, like he's scared of me? he's never done this before!!! also, his hair is all of a sudden very greasy, and he's breathing really fast??? HELP!!!!!!:((

In my view, you should look for abnormal behavior or something out of the ordinary that will worry you like sneezing, coughing, shaking or his anus lined with dropping which could be a sign of weakness. Make sure to handle him properly and indicate when you are going to pick him so as not to startle him. You can take him to the vet for examinations if you see more abnormal behavior.
