The Turkish Hamster Mesocricetus brandti is a species of hamster closely related to the Syrian Hamster. It is used as a laboratory animal in scientific research, but is not widely available on the pet market. It is available to pet owners in the US, though it is less popular than the Syrian or "Golden" Hamster due to its more aggressive temperament. It does not seem to be available in European pet shops, at least not to the general public.
