Ok so first post of the A-Z challenge is going to be about Albino hamsters.
Syrians can be albino, white with red eyes, as can dwarf hamsters. The albino gene is recessive, meaning the two parent hamsters must carry it to create an albino baby. Winter whites are NOT albino hamsters as they have dark eyes and only change coat in winter (unless you have a pearl which is white all year round). If you are curious as to whether your hamster is albino or not one of the biggest clues is the coat colour, clearly. They will be white with red eyes. If they have red eyes and are pure white, they are albino :D.
Sadly, albino hamsters can be born with no eyes and live a maximum of 1 year. It is one of the biggest dangers when breeding without knowing the parent hamster's genes. They have a poor quality of life and struggle to do the simplest of things, so that is why people make sure they are 100% sure on the genes of parent hamster's before breeding.
