Welcome!


Hamsters
Originally uploaded by aimeedars

We doubled the size of our rodent population today. A faculty member who does behavior research with dwarf hamsters was adopting out the adults, so George and I brought two home. (Otherwise, it was curtains for them.)

They are females and very active, and so far, pretty skittish. One is about a year old; the other was born in September 2009. They are hilarious! So far, the other hamster and the gerbil are completely unaware of their presence. (All of the rodents are in their own cages–we don’t want any carnage here!)
