  • Yes, hamsters live in the wild. There are 3 distinct species of animal that are all referred to as hamsters: Cricetulus, Phodopus, and Mesocricetus.

    The Russian Dwarf Hamster (Phodopus campbelli) are native to the steppes and semi-arid areas of central Asia, the Altay Mountains and northeastern China. This is probably the most common species you’ll find in a cage.

    The Winter White Russian Dwarf Hamster (Phodopus sungorus) live in Siberia, Kazakhstan and Mongolia. Also known as Siberian Hamsters.

    The Chinese Hamster (Cricetulus griseus) comes from the deserts of northern China and Mongolia.

    The Roborovski Hamster (Phodopus roborovskii) can be found in the Gobi Desert, the desert steppe of Mongolia and in some parts of Northern China.

    The Syrian Hamster (Mesocricetus auratus) comes from Syria, funnily enough.

  • I think there are relatives of hamsters in the wild prob. in Australia or in Africa. They had to be in the wild at some time

  • yeah of course they live in the wild. One of the places they live in is Syria obviously because there is a Syrian hamster lol

  • Yeah I guess so, probably different kinds of pet hamsters but in Asia, Africa, America I guess there are 🙂

  • I have read books on hamsters and they all say they come from the desert.

  • Yes, they are wild, they will make a home with one big chamber and lots of tunnels going of to little food areas, unfortunately, I do not know where they live.

  • If I am not mistaken, I believe they are native to the south east asia area. Particularly Thailand.
