Parentage: Blakdyak + Snow White
Litter group: Chiaroscurogang
Lifespan: 26 months 29 days
Cause of death: old age
Isnobol at 8 months 24 days (ancestral cage scene), 32 months (Arrowangkada wheel), and 26 months 29 days (Hall). The last scene is actually taken just more than 8 hours before he breathe his last.
Traits and characteristics: Big and has a tendency to grow fat. White fur coat is always ‘un-groomed’ and stained (“Dirty Hammy” made my days). At six months, a persistent bully to his smaller brother Ispidbol (needed to be separated). Hyperactive at first but became “cooler” as he has grown bigger and older. Not afraid of elevated places, anchors his hind legs first before “climbing” down. Doesn’t bite – but does ‘a little’ when he finds your fingers intruding his cage. Always eager to approach when called, expecting a treat or a tour outside his cage. Tolerant in almost anyway he is handled, just don’t startle him. Once ‘cuddled’, he seems contented when he is put back in his cage.
Isnobol is the first white hammy occupant of The Hall. As the 7th ‘steward’, he served for only 22 days.

Alam nyo ba yung figurative o idiomatic phrase na “Snowball effect”? Walang niebe (snow) dito sa Pilipinas pero ganito daw yun:
Ang isang bola ng yelo, habang gumugulong pababa sa snow-covered slope ng isang bundok, ay palaki nang palaki nang PALAKI ang sukat.
How much have we grown in our “roll downhill”? Are we growing up, or just growing old?
