Hmmm, ns remember hearing roughly 1.5- 2 year in the wild, and also 2-3 years when given suitable care in a cage setting. Simply did a quick google search and this seems to be the usual consensus.

Not countless hamsters live over 2 years (though you will uncover some Roborovskis advertise 3), and a couple of have been known to live increase to.. Roughly 2 and six month or thereabouts. In the end, like with any animal, it depends on wellness conditions and the situations of your breeding.

Pet keep hams tend to come from mill situations, so they room prone come genetic difficulties (mills perform not safeguard against: inbreeding, reproduction when the mum is too young come safely carry, cross-breeding between Winter White hamsters and also Russian Dwarfs, etc) that can lead to shorter lifespans.

You should probably expect Peggy come live to about two, possibly a pair months an ext or less depending on what her health and wellness is favor leading up to her eventual passing. Approximated lifespans once it comes to hamsters are practically always simply guesstimates by the source: they can"t account for the breeding & general situation of individual hamsters, therefore they can never be all that accurate.

You can certainly say that a healthy ham is much more likely to live end a year and extremely i can not qualify to live as well much an ext than 3 years, though.
