  • Guinea Pig, I think they have more personality, and I understand that hamsters can be mean?

  • guinea pig, hamsters are hostile, and don't like to be bothered. They aren't too smart either. They'll walk right off the edge of a counter.

  • Our hamsters have all been very very sweet, we have 2 that are so interactive and fun. The other 2 were nice, but preferred their nocturnal schedule to our human schedule!
