    No, only in the wild but if its cold where the hamster lives even if its a house then the hamster will hibernate my friend had this problem she buried hers alive because she thought the little poor thing was dead but he was hibernating because he was next to a really cold window that was frosty but he was in a shoebox n he chewed himself out so he didn't die and mine didn't hibernate once and i live in England where its cold....=]

    Hamsters will hibernate, but they usually do not survive hibernation. It's imperative to keep them inside where it's warm. Extremely cold temperatures or a sudden, drastic drop in temperature will cause them to go into hibernation. Once that happens, they are extremely difficult to save. As long as they are inside where temperatures are relatively stable and never fall below freezing, they should not go into hibernation.

    Yes if kept permanently in chilly conditions (eg unheated bedroom). Bring the cage back into a warmer room and leave him to sort himself out - whilst crossing all fingers, and anything else you have spare.

    Nope. I had a hamster and she never did that. Even if they are wild hamsters, they won't do that because the don't live in areas where it snows.
