Wild Hamsters fight over delicious candle wax – Seven Worlds, One Planet | BBC Earth


A European hamster.
Wild hamsters are found in grasslands
throughout central Europe.
Here, in the city,
they’re doing extremely well.
This male is on a mission
to find food.
The coast looks clear.
But best not take any chances.
The trick is to get in and out
before you’re caught.
And now…dessert.
Candle wax – it’s full of oil
and high in calories.
A hamster’s cheeks can hold
a quarter of its body weight.
Just one more mouthful.
SQUEAKING
Oh, dear.
Big cheeks and narrow bottlenecks.
How very embarrassing.
Mission accomplished.

  1. WOW .. what a breaking News story from the BBC … still nothing on week 68 of the violent demos against Macrons globalist policies in France .. Hamsters ?!?! .. seriously ??

  2. Maybe they are able to eat candle wax cuz they been in the wild for so long unlike domesticated hamster who are used to pellet,veggies,treats and other things

  3. I didn't know there are wild hamsters. They are adorable. I also didn't know candle wax was so delicious. I will have to try it myself. 😳😉☺🐹🐭🐱🐺

  4. Misleading title. Hamsters aren't fighting in this video. There's only one hamster and he's struggling to get the wax out of the bottle.

  5. I didn't know that hamsters got so fat !! I also didn't know that candle wax has a nutritional value. I have learned something new today.

  6. Все же, на кладбище не стоило снимать развлекательный сюжет. Проявите уважение к покойным!

  7. Little tubby guy is adorable haha imagine coming outside and seeing this little dude laying on his back with his head stuck in there
