I admire hamster mothers, instinctively, from first pregnancy, knowing how to take care of a brood of hamsters. I thus, do not approve when people say that hamster mother are murderers and commit infanticide as they fancy, and because they "like it". Hamster mothers, by instinct, find food, hide and by instinct, take care of their babies. If we say they are cruel, we might be granting a higher consciousness than they actually posess, for I'm sure that they do not scheme. I'm impressed with them because, as a human, I doubt we'd be as sucessful as they are in rearing young.
If you have a hamster mother picture to contribute, please do.
