It’s kinda their startle reaction. According to the scientific studies, the hamsters get startled by simple poke. But don’t worry, this won’t harm them in any ways. It’s kind of their native behaviour.
Similar behaviour can be observed in us too. Imagine if you are concentrating on a topic or in a deep thought and suddenly your wife asks a question. Although a normal looking scene like this can startle you given the fact that you brain is consummated with one subject and its fraction of seconds to direct your attention to another one. In other words the time you take to regain your senses is defined as startling action.
This also explains hamsters native trait that they keep 100% of their focus on teeth grinding and simply forget the surrounding. This behaviour is comparable to a dog chewing his bone. Bone chewing is something the dogs love and they give their full attention. If you poke a dog that time, you will see a quick reaction from your furry friend.
Watch his expressions and you will know why this simple video is trending on Twitter. So far it has collected 4.3 million views and counting. Over 70,000 likes and 20,000 comments show that this video truly is a timeless masterpiece.
