Can Hamsters Eat Pomegranate Seeds?

Pomegranate seeds are the seeds of the pomegranate.

The number of seeds in a pomegranate can vary from 200 to about 1400, depending on their size.

Each seed has a surrounding water-laden pulp — the edible sarcotesta that forms from the seed coat — ranging in color from white to deep red or purple.

The seeds are “exarillate”, i.e., unlike some other species in the order, Myrtales, no aril is present.

The sarcotesta of pomegranate seeds consists of epidermis cells derived from the integument.

The seeds are embedded in a white, spongy, astringent membrane, because this protects them. (source)
