barking hamster!

Before Hammie-Boy started living with me, I wasn't aware that hamsters barked. Well, he's doing it now, in his sleep.

This little guy is the sweetest, most charming hamster I've ever known. He's cuddly, playful, and patient even with children. And curious! (See below.)

I have a question for those of you "in the know" about hamsters: Do they all bark? Just the boys? Or is Hammie-Boy a rarity?

PS: Just returned from physical therapy. No super-powers yet, but flexibility is increasing fast!
