хомяк, pronounced homyak, is Russian for Hamster.  Scabbers, pictured here, is in fact a Russian Hamster.  He lives in Yousef’s school during the week, and stays with different children during weekends.  We have the pleasure of keeping him here for the long weekend!

I was taking some shots of Scabbers inside his cage, most of which were boring.  Then I took out his play tunnel, stuck him in from one side and called him from the other.  I found the resulting shots rather attractive, and different, so I took a few more.

A quick look back at me – wondering what on earth I was doing… and then he appeared on the other end.

He eventually got bored – and jumped off!


  1. Oh, what a cutie….

  2. Interesting! Small change in the setup resulted in a big change.
