Why Does My Hamster Make A Clicking Noise?

There are many actions that a hamster makes that it can be mystifying.

One of these is the fact that hamsters seem to make a clicking noise at times.

So why does my hamster make a clicking noise?

Well the good thing, is that there is actually a reason for this strange action.

Hamsters may make clicking noises by rubbing their front teeth together in an activity known as Bruxing.

This is where the two incisors of the hamster in the upper and lower jaw wear down because of continuous wear and tear caused by this action.

Through this action, a clicking noise is made and given out.

They only seem to make a clicking noise when the hamster is calm and relaxed.

This is a good sign that all is well with your hammy and a good sign of communication.
