All About Polythemus

Name/s: Polythemus
Species: Syrian Hamster
Sex: Male
Neutered: No
Date of Birth: Unknown but estimated as June 2017
History Polythemus was rescued, along with about 70 other hamsters, from a breeder who allowed things to get out of control.
Temperament Polythemus hasn’t been handled much so this needs some work but his natural inclination is to be friendly so a home with some experience should be able to win him over no problem.
Health He lost an eye apparently during a fight with a female he was supposed to be mating with but is otherwise healthy
Ideal home Polythemus would like a home with some experience of hamsters, who can put the time and patience in to winning his trust.
He needs an adult handler so would not be suitable as a child’s pet.
