Ugh calm down, I have already admitted to my silly mistake. It wasn't because of the eagerness to get the first comment, why is that so significant anyway? It was an unintentional misinterpation. Now let us all put this petty issue behind us and celebrate with some arms and cats.

I think people on this site just thumb you down because of your other dumbass comments. That's pretty sad, they must have a grudge against you haha. I'll thumb you up though. This comment wasn't bad, in my opinion at least.

I agree once you build a rep be it good or bad it sticks. Either change the way you word your harsh comment style or the community will thumb your ass down... wait that came out wrong - see what I mean :/

Yeah I'm just giving some advice, things didn't go smooth for me either in the beginning. But keep at it though and in the end remember, don't give a flying monkey turd.

If it's as common as people in this comment section claim, I wonder how the hamster species has survived natural selection. Human intervention? I mean, were hamsters at one point wild animals and later domesticated by humans? Did they eat their young as wild animals, or is it a trait that developed since domestication, like dogs with floppy ears. I'm not arguing, I'm just genuinely curious because while I Know that animals do sometimes eat their young, I've never heard of a species that would do

Hamsters only eat their young when they sense danger around them that might hurt their young, frail, defenseless babies. They decide that (for some reason) eating the babies will be better than having them potentially killed by an outside predator. It doesn't occur often enough that the hamster population would dwindle away in the wild. Also hamsters are not the only animal to do this.

I thought it was a hormone imbalance that made them eat their babies. I know that's how it is with dogs and cats at least. Mommy doesn't get enough estrogen (I might be wrong on that hormone, but I think that's what it is) and suddenly she goes cannibalistic on her babies!

Some fish do it as well. My black betas had 25-ish babies. Before we could get a separate tank, they had eaten about half of them. Cats too, though I'm not sure about their own. My friend's cat had babies, and the male in the house (not the father) tried eating the kittens every chance he got.

My hamster didn't eat her babies, she just stopped feeding them, I tried my best to keep them alive, but all four of them died one by one, I felt so bad!!

@68 - #76 is right. Momma cat will go into a second heat if she loses her kittens, and that gives him a chance to spread his own genes instead of other cat's.

#43 they also eat them so that if there are predators around that could harm the young, she could get the nutrients back from the babies and not let it go to waste...

Hamsters and other types of animals, specifically rodents, eat their babies if they sense anything predatorial around or if they can't support the babies. For example, if the mother cannot produce enough milk. Then, they eat the babies TI take back the nutrients and energy instead of wasting it. Babies take a LOT, so it's stupid to waste. Trust me, my first "job" was being a volunteer at a veterinary clinic.

My friend bought me a hamster for Xmas and we didn't know it was pregnant thought it was a male actually, and she had babies and ate all but the heads... Was super gross if I had known I would of saved them.

Step 1: Remove pole from ass. Step 2: Appreciate that 5 was able to make something funny out of a touchy subject.

I found 5's comment somewhat humorous, but your comment, 49, was completely fucking ignorant. I see absolutely no reason to down vote number 5. You seem stuck on yourself, bitch. Ain't so fun now, huh?

What's your problem? Someone knocked your pro life picket sign out of your stupid hand? Get over yourself. #5's comment was awesome!

I admit, I also suck at trying to make good funny jokes. I am one of those that make a joke and its not that funny. :/

I mean humans eat their young. it's basically the same thing. Just...it's rare, and not acceptable. Okay maybe not the same.
