Because they prefer to sleep during the day and stay awake at night, hamsters are nocturnal. The purpose of a hamster’s birth is to store food.
They can stuff fruits, seeds, roots, and leaves into their cheeks, which look like small pouches. When they reach an abundant food source, they stuff their cheeks to the brim and return to their burrows where they have built food chambers to store food.
