Teddy Bear hamsters, also known as Syrian or golden hamsters, are the largest and most commonly sold of their species.  Their size and calm, friendly nature make them great pets for adults and children (ages 8+).  With round black eyes, small pink noses, round ears and stubby tails, Teddy Bear hamsters have impressively stretchy cheek pouches that can expand to twice the width of their heads and hold half their body weight.
