Hamsters are nocturnal animals and can see in the dark. They have a high density of rod cells, which allow them to detect movement very well even when it is not lit up by the light. This makes sense because their natural habitat is underground where there is little or no light!

In the wild, hamsters are nocturnal animals and can see in the dark. They have a high density of rod cells which allow them to detect movement very well even when it is not lit up by the light.

This makes sense because their natural habitat is underground where there is little or no light!

Hamsters communicate with each other through smell rather than sight so they don’t need good eyesight but they do use sound to locate one another if necessary (or just for fun!)

But this means that spending time together does involve getting down on all fours and sniffing around like most cats–and we humans may want to keep our distance at first.
