Hamtaro, the Pet of the Day
Name: Hamtaro
Age: Four months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Black Bear Syrian Hamster
Home: New Jersey, USA
   Hamtaro is my sweet little hamster. I think what makes him special is that he is very unique and different from other hamsters. Being a black bear hamster, he is very gentle. But, the thing that makes him special is that he does not need a water bottle to drink from! When I went to buy him from the pet shop, I was short on money and not able to buy a water bottle. Instead, I took a little bowl and filled it up with water. He learned to lap the water up without using a water bottle! Recently, his tooth fell out, and I know that was a very painful experience for him, but he was strong and was not afraid to eat or drink. No matter how much it hurt, he was still able to carry on with his daily routines.
