How long can a hamster go with out food? how long do they live in general?

Hamsters can go for about 4 or 5 days with out food but they store food in there expandble cheeks
They live 2 to 3 years depending on how well you look after it.
They are not hard work at all. If you are thinking of getting one then go ahed but give it love and care if you do.

Here are some sites for hamster care.
Good Luck

P.S. Be carful it you have a cold or a flo becouse hamsters can catch them so try not to touch it.
They live about 3 years - I would guess they could probably go without food for a few days.
Hamsters can go about three to four days without feeding them, but they do store there food in there bed or in there mouth so it might take awhile for them to starve, but water is really important so make Shir you say on top of that. They usually live 2 to 4 year mine lived 3
Probibly can go without food for 4-5 days.But make sure they always have water. My hamster stores alot of food!
There average live span is. 2-3 years. My dwarf Hamster died at the age of 1 yr. But thats couse she had a cancer' ish /Tumor. It was really sad. (So if you ever see a lump on your Hamster its more than likely has a cancer ish/ Tumor.
thay can go 2 or 3 weeks with out food. thay can live 7 to 10 years.
