This week we were so lucky to adopt two adorable dwarf hamsters! They are a wonderful addition to our classroom! We have had such fun watching them move about, watching them eat and fight with each other. North and South were named by our afternoon children on Monday after deciding they should be named after the continents. One child suggested North and South America and it was automatically shortened to North and South.
These little guys are quite social! Although they like to take naps during the day, often they are seen coming up to the sides and climbing up to get close to our faces. They like to climb on top of their water bottle and run in their wheel! We feed them every other day but often give them a cucumber slice as a treat!
