The European hamster is a solitary animal, much larger than the Syrian/golden hamster commonly kept as a pet. It prefers to inhabit farmlands and is widely considered an agricultural pest. Like all hamsters, it has poor eyesight and relies mostly on its hearing and sense of smell. Individuals communicate in the ultrasonic range.
