Anonymous:We got a hamster yesterday but he's been very timid and shy since we brought him home. How much time a hamster needs to get used to a new place?
Anonymous:Just keep putting you hands in the cage once he gets used to that try touching him. they will turn belly up but is just his way of protection. Mine toke about 2 or 3 days but after that she was such a sweet lil thing.
Anonymous:It depends on the hamster, sometimes they can be really shy. The most important thing is to make sure that he can see and smell you before you touch him, so he isn't surprised. Just play with him a little more each day and then he'll get used to you. Sometimes it can take a whole month! Also, don't wake him up when he's sleeping until he's comfortable with you. Otherwise you'll freak him out.
