The Hamster Trials Diary Entry #3:
We were a little concerned, actually a lot concerned, that Momo-Chan might in fact be a Manmo-Kun due to her/his (?) enthusiastic, uh, humping behavior recently.
But it turns out that female hamster will hump each other when they are in heat. So, with a little luck hopefully we won’t be adding any new hamsters to our hamster family.
