Was recently at a local pet store, and I saw these two [ http://www.furaffinity.net/view/16507086/
] [ http://www.furaffinity.net/view/16507102/
] together in one cage. At first I thought it was three mice, two long haired ones and the white sleeping in the middle, all three cuddled up together. Tried to pick one of the 'long haired mice' up [I'd never seen one and was curious] and got an angry hamster trying to bite me cos I'd just tried picking up just his lower half.
I'd thought hamsters [Syrians especially] were territorial? Is that not true as I thought? Or is there something keeping him from killing that mouse?
My hamster has had time running around, out of his cage at the same time as the mice. He tried to eat their tails, sometimes [when they sat in front of him], but never actually attacked them. They were only out together once, though, so I've got no idea how he'd react to them if they were housed together. I've got no intention of putting my hamster and mice together, but do they get along better than what I've heard? Or was the pet store thing just some rare relationship of some sort, maybe?
