A few days ago, I was admiring my bunny's long, thick golden-brown eyelashes (as you do). It's as if Pickles is wearing palomino mascara.
But when Prince, my Syrian hamster, woke up, I saw that he didn't appear to have any - golden or otherwise.
This got me thinking. 1) Do hamsters actually have eyelashes? 2) why would a domestic rabbit which sleeps above ground have eyelashes, and a pet hamster which sleeps in a nest, not have them?
I have attached photos of the relevant animals' eyes so you can see what I mean!!
