The dwarf hamsters represent a group of small hamsters in the genus Phodopus. Although they do not belong to this genus, the Chinese Hamster is often referred to as a dwarf hamster as well.


Genus Phodopus - dwarf hamsters
- Phodopus campbelli - Campbell's Dwarf Hamster
- Phodopus roborovski - Desert Dwarf Hamster
- Phodopus sungorus - Dzhungarian Dwarf Hamster
Genus Cricetulus - ratlike hamsters
- Cricetulus griseus - Chinese hamster

Although more limited in color than the Syrian Hamster, dwarf hamsters are an alternative to pet owners who enjoy a smaller, more sociable hamster. However, they must be handled frequently and gently to stay friendly.

The Dwarf Campbells Russian Hamster and Dwarf Winter White Russian hamster usually live between 1.5 and 2.5 years and only reach a size of about 8cm - 10cm. The Chinese Hamster is 10-12 cm in length usually lives to 2.5 to 3 years. The Roborovski Hamster is the smallest at only 4-5 cm and lives to 3 to 3.5 years.
