The distinctively coated Golden Hamster does not tolerate the company of other hamsters, which means that Goldens cannot be kept in pairs.
Even so, Golden Hamsters are docile with both adults and children and make good family pets.
The titles in Barron's Complete Pet Owner's Manuals series make great introductions to the pleasures and duties of pet ownership for inexperienced and soon-to-be pet owners, as well as for older children having their first experiences with pet care.
Attractively illustrated and filled with helpful information, these books advise on purchasing, housing, feeding, health care--and where applicable, grooming and training pets.
Each book is individually written by an expert--a trainer, breeder, veterinarian, or other animal specialist.
Barron's Complete Pet Owner's Manuals cover every popular dog and cat breed, as well as bird varieties, hamsters and other small caged animals, fish varieties for aquarium hobbyists, terrarium pets, and even exotics, such as reptiles, amphibians, and scorpions.
All books have 70 or more color photos plus instructive line art.
