Hey, my birthday's coming up and i can't decide whether i should buy a guinea pig, or whether i should buy a hamster.

1. A hamster has a tiny tail, but a guinea pig has no tail.
2. Hamsters can climb a bit, but guinea pigs can't.
3. Hamsters have tiny hard-ish ears, but guinea pigs have tiny, soft, translucent AWWWW ears.
4. Hamsters have sharp teeth, but guinea pigs have blunt teeth.
5. Hamsters can sleep sitting up, while guinea pigs sleep in the usual four-legged position.
6. Both their bodies evolve around their digestive systems.
7. Hamsters live for around 3-4 years, while guinea pigs live for 6-7.

8. Hamsters taste like a cross between chicken and mouse, while guinea pigs taste like smoked chicken, but softer. >:B

9. Hamsters have a slightly pointed snout, while guinea pigs have blunted snouts while the nosie and mouth far apart.
10. Hamsters like to play more, but guinea pigs like to eat, pee and hide in a corner and shiver and go 'chui-chui' more. ^_^
11. Hamsters can get aggressive, while guinea pigs always let you take care of them.
12. If i have to buy a hamster, i'll be buying a single one, if i have to buy a guinea pig, i'd have to buy two, because they get all lonely.

I have no budget constraint, but i have to make a choice here.
Any help i could get, guys?

He's the hero The Pit deserves but not the one it needs right now. So, we'll hunt him, because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a silent guardian. A watchful protector. GbAdimDb5m7.

I don't know why you bothered with that whole write-up when Hamster is the obvious choice.


And I was totally going to post Hamtaro first.

Get a hamster, guinea pig, and a chinchilla, film their interactions, and then overdub your voice to create a sitcom.

I wouldn't recommend either. They both have short lifespans and apparently when they die they look and sound like they're in serious pain. It traumatized my little cousin and now shes too scared to get any pet other then a fish or something stupid that you don't get too attached to.
#21
Get a Degu. There's no rodent more badass then Degus besides rats. I've had Raichu for a few months are he's really cool.

Hate to break it to you, but hamsters do the EXACT SAME THING.


So much missed sleep back when my hamster was alive.

Hamsters are easier to get in your butt....

But shoving cats up there to get the hamsters out is anything but easy.

If you have a hamster that lives 3-4 years, I will show you a super hamster.

1 maybe 2 is more realistic.

I have had both, and guinea pigs are more awesome animals, but hamsters are more fun to play with.

They're also cheaper, so yeah, hamster.

I once killed me neighbours hamsters, aye? I was meant to feed 'em whiles they been goin' away up north for a bit, aye for a holiday or somethin', mate but of course, knowin' me, I forgot to feed 'em, fella. Ended up dead, aye? ****en' felt terrible, mate.
What's the difference anyway, mate? I didn't vote because I thought they was the same thing aye?

Just make sure that if you get two they are of the same sex- don't want them having a load of babies everywhere then eating them.

Get a gerbil.

They aren't loud as fuck.


The only drawback to gerbils is that they suck at not getting eaten by cats.
