Tic - January 2008 - June 2010
Tac - January 2008 - October 4th 2009
Tic and Tac were my two female Roborovski hamsters. I got them in early January 2008. They were my inspiration for starting this website!
I could tell them apart because of a small bite mark Tic has had on her ear since I got her. In November 2008, they had a serious fight and Tic got badly wounded on her backside, you can see photos here.
Since I got Tic and Tac, I have owned 5 other hamsters. Here's a list in chronological order:
Coco (Male Syrian hamster) - 18th August 2008 - October 2009
Pickle (Female Syrian hamster) - June 2008 - June 2010
Sausage (Male Chinese hamster) - November 2008 - Mid 2011
Salami (Male Chinese hamster) - November 2008 - Late 2011
Ickle (Female Roborovski hamster) - October 2009 - Early 2012
In the albums before and partly including September 2008, I was using a Nikon CoolPix E995.
I use Macro mode, with flash on. Many people think flash is bad for your hamsters, in my opinion, it's fine as long as the hamsters don't react to it. Join the discussion here.
After the fight, Tic and Tac were placed separately in temporary caging:
