Like most mammals, hamsters also have a tail, but it is usually very short and not always noticeable, the average length is 7 mm (in some species it can reach 10 cm). Its main function is to cover the anus from infections.
It is important for the owners to monitor his condition – among hamsters, a disease called “wet tail” is common. This is the main syndrome, the cause is diarrhea caused by poor quality food, dirty water, or poorly cleaned cells. This disease is serious, as 90% of pets will die if you do not go to the veterinarian as soon as it was noticed.
