Argente Dwarf Campbells Russian Hamster

Argente Campbells Russian HamsterThe Argente mutation occurred in Russian sometime before 1993. The Argente has a bright ginger coat on the back and sides with blueish-grey roots. There is a thin greyish-brown stripe running along the spine. The belly is ivory in colour and meets the ginger top colour along the sides where three arches are formed. The eyes are red and the ears are flesh coloured.

The Argente can vary in shade with some being so pale they are almost an orange-cream in colour.

The Argente can be combined with any pattern and coat type to produce Argente Satin, Argente Platinum, etc.

For showing the Argente should be a deep rich orange with a good dorsal stripe.
