Exophthalmos. It's normal for hamsters eyes to bulge a little and hell, even >>2001504
is normal as long as it immediately goes back to normal but OP hamster is not ok.
Hamsters, gerbils, rats, mice, etc they don't look forward either like we do. Pic related.
Jesus fuck, this DOES NOT look okay.
I band birds, and a scumbag >outdoors cat got a Northern Cardinal that was suspended in one of my mist nets. It's eyes looked like this, and it at least had the luxury of being dead.
Maybe it's the sleep deprivation, but I haven't laughed that hard in a long time, my stomach hurts.
On a side note, what's wrong with the animal? I know hamsters eyes kind of bulge if you squeeze them, but could anything else cause that to happen? Or is this just the result of a severe trauma and now they won't "reset"?
So I guess I'm asking, could something other than physical trauma cause that, and will it be okay?
Looks like the mammal version of a budgett's frog
Try having it happen.
Parents wouldn't use humane kill, or humane traps.
So often mice (and rats) lived through the initial snap.
I had to kill these half dead mice. This was before I bred mice and had a Co2 system.
