Roborovski dwarf hamsters, also known as desert hamsters, are a sandy-brown color with a white belly and white marks over their eyes. There is also another color variation; the white-faced Roborovski, or husky Roborovski, which has a completely white face.
Adult Roborovski dwarf hamsters have a slender body and are only about 2 inches in length, making them the smallest of all the pet hamster species. They are also the fastest and most lively, which can make them very hard to handle, particularly for children.
Expected Life Span
A Roborovski dwarf hamster can be expected to live for between 3 and 3.5 years. This gives it the longest expected life of any of the dwarf hamster species.
