Full Answer

Hamsters most commonly vocalize when they experience pain or fear, making it especially important to pay attention to a hamster's behavior, as it can indicate sickness or injury. Syrian hamsters also vocalize when confronted by other hamsters, as a warning or a sign of aggression. This is because they are solitary animals, unlike dwarf hamsters, which prefer to live in packs. Some hamsters vocalize often, and others are relatively silent.
