A large creature the shape of a hamster.

Giant hamsters are just the giant versions of their vermin counterparts: the hamster. They are fairly uncommon and may appear in a small group within most savage biomes. They are not hostile and will not attempt to remove the entrails of your bearded slaves. They can be caught in cage traps to be turned into pets, live trade goods, meat, bones, and leather. Despite their pet value, their products don't fetch a high price. Giant hamsters have a somewhat short life span (about 2-3 years) and are incapable of breeding, so they are unsuitable for use in a meat industry.
