Is Watermelon OK for hamsters??

Answers:
Watermelon is fine, just not too much because it has a high water content, and you don't want him getting diarrhea. ;)

That's assuming you have a syrian hamster though; dwarf hamsters are really prone to diabetes so you want to avoid giving them sugar as much as you can.
yes, if you want to kill them.









...just kiding, watermelon is fine.
i think fruit is ok for them.
Is hamster food ok for you?
Yes. They love fruit and they know what is good for them.
Yes.

Honey, hamsters are rats in the end. Think Templeton in Charlottes Web. :)
Sure, why wouldn't it be? It's mostly water which is OK for them, and you can feed your hamsters fruit.
yup!! mine loves watermelons!!
It's OK, but just a tiny piece.
The best thing for their health is fresh cabbage and/or lettuce (a small piece every day.)
yes i am pretty sure it is ok! But not to much!!!
yes, just be sure not to let them eat the seeds because they cant digest that part

Its is a good idea to use watermellon if you are going on vacation and taking your hamster with you because since you cant keep the waterbottle in the cage while the car is moving (it will spill, or the hamster could chip a tooth while drinking) and since watermellon is full of water then that is a good alternative to the waterbottle (only while in the car)

most definitely. water melon is mainly... water
it contains no toxins, but it is a good idea to give your hamster some dry food as well with his/her fresh food, as this will mean that he/she gets all the nutrients they need
Watermelon is ok but only in small amounts. Too much naturel suger is not good for any animal, but a small amount is ok. They like the rind too.
YES HAMSTERS LOVE WATERMELON
