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

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.
