The European hamster Cricetus Cricetus is the biggest hamster in the world, standing one foot high on his haunches. His belly is black. He is very easily surprised... especially if he thinks a goblin is chasing him!
Common European hamsters live in Central Europe and West Asia. They love packing their pouches. They build deep, complex burrows with living rooms and special chambers for food storage, bathroom, bedroom and hibernation chamber. "Oh!" he says. "I hear a goblin!"
"Can't see any flying goblins...!"
"Where is the goblin? On the ground, you say..?"
"Hi there!" Casual hamster-style...
"Oh no, the goblin's back!"

One is calm, the other won't stop pinging into that bush!
