    How hard are they to look after? My sister had one a few years ago and I really liked the hamster but it died .

    Even though they do bite often I would like one so what sort of stuff would I need other than a cage, water bottle, hay and food?

    No not really, just don't keep them in your bedroom because they make a lot of noise at night!

    None of mine bite me (I've got 4)

    You won't need much else apart from what you've stated, maybe you'll need some vitamin to put in their water and you might need some cream if they injure themselves but that's all for later on...

    Lucky, my sister had a siberian dwarf hamster I think and they bite. Thanks for your response though.

    Do the males and females get on or do they fight to the death?

    You don't want to put them together unless you want to breed millions of hamsters!! (Slight over exaggeration)

    Females tend to bite more often than males and male hamsters are tamer...
    Get hamsters of the same sex...tho sometimes when they get older they might start fighting...but most of the time their fine
