my hamster just died, is it possible he could be hibernating in March?

  1. My understanding is they hamsters aren’t supposed to hibernate in captivity since the temperature in your home isn’t likely cold enough to trigger hibernation. I believe the condition is called Turpor (?) and is triggered by it being under 58 degrees F in your house. If that happens, it’s a problem and could cause your hamster to die.
