Koala and Husky, the Pet of the Day
Name: Koala, Husky
Age: One and a half months old
Gender: Female, Male
Kind: Russian Dwarf Hamster
Home: Singapore
   Husky is the one looking at the camera and Koala is the one eating the carrot treat. Husky and Koala came to us when they were thirteen days old. Husky, being the aggressive male hamster, got it's name because it behaved like a dog at times. When you stroked it's back, it would remain still for a while before turning its head to bite your finger. As for Koala, she sleeps most of the time. In fact, she will just eat and sleep, like the Australian Koala Bear. As siblings, the two of them are totally different. It's such a joy to see these two creatures living in the world of their own, without worries for food and clean cage! Husky and Koala are totally different. Husky is the sporty one which spends more time on the wheel. He's more daring than Koala as he was the first to walk onto my palm. Koala's favorite hobby is sleeping. She sleeps and eats the whole day. They favorite food is sun flower seeds. As you can see, they are slightly over weight! They can recognize my voice and would rush to be near me, hoping for some treats! When he has nothing to do, Husky will disturb Koala and the two will have their usual Hamstermania - their very own version of wrestling!
