A friendly, cartoon-styled face of a hamster—a small rodent often kept as a pet—looking straight ahead. Generally depicted as a brown-and-white faced hamster with whiskers, a pink nose, puffy cheeks, and large, round, pink ears, sometimes with a buck tooth.
Often used with an affectionate tone. May be used to represent a gerbil, guinea pig, chinchilla, or related animals. Does not have a full-bodied hamster emoji counterpart.
Not to be confused with 🐭 Mouse Face.
