I couldn’t pass this up!

Our favorite animal is useful too! (though eating its own excrement is a little gross…)



  1. i wonder what the rate of cancer in hamsters is? rip blueberry and raspberry!

  2. These animals are amazing, though they don’t eat their own feces–they’re coprophagous, like several other rodents. It’s the only way to digest all those tubers.

    I remember J telling me that an absurd proportion of hamsters die of cancer, but technically blueberry (peace be upon her) died of a chocolate overdose. And raspberry moose died from M’s foot.
