Can Hamsters Eat Dried Mango?

Last updated 21st August 2016. Dried fruit such as dried mango, is fruit from which the majority of the original water content has been removed.

This is done either naturally, through sun drying, or through the use of specialized dryers or dehydrators.

Dried fruit has a long tradition of use dating back to the fourth millennium BC in Mesopotamia.

It is prized because of its sweet taste, nutritive value, and long shelf life. (source)

So can hamsters eat dried mango at all?

Yes they can but it depends on what variety of hamster you have.

Syrian’s and Roborovski hamsters

Syrian and Roborovski hamsters can eat them. Feed them sparingly though as they are high in sugar, a few small pieces at a time that they can hold in their paws.

Chinese, Winter White Dwarf’s and Russian Campbell Dwarf hamsters

Chinese, Winter White Dwarf’s and Russian Campbell Dwarf hamsters cannot eat them though as they are too high in sugar for them to handle.

They are prone to diabetes and so will hurt them if eaten.
