Meet Aquarius, this super sweet little hamster was surrendered as she wasn’t getting the attention she needed in her previous home. Aquarius is a tad shy but loves to be held and snuggled. She enjoys midnight runs on her exercise wheel, exploring her enclosure, but always staying close to her comfort den. And of course filling her cheeks with food on her adventures. Hamsters require large, stimulating enclosures that they can explore, burrow and play in. Potential adopters should they do their research to insure they can provide the lifestyle these tiny but unique creatures require. If you think Aquarius would make a good match to your home then please follow the steps below.
*Please Note: We do require photos and dimensions of the enclosure you plan to house Aquarius*
