If you’d like to find out more about the European hamster, whose European populations are in steep decline, largely due to changes in farming practices,  you might like to see our feature The Hamsters of Alsace, by Eric Baccega, which includes a downloadable pdf.

The animal world is full of surprising and amusing moments, so we’ve created a gallery of humorous moments and a feature on Animal Blunders, which includes some great shots of funny moments of animal behaviour. We hope you enjoy it!
