What's this — a daredevil hamster?! When I heard about Hammy the Harley-Jumping Hamster, I just had to investigate.

Turns out, Hammy is a juvenile rodent from the Pacific Northwest with a bit of a wild streak. That is, if you consider "wild streak" to mean "leaps a Harley Davidson over a chasm roughly twelve times his body length." Even Evel Knievel had trouble clearing an analogous distance consistently, but this hamster seems to laugh in the face of danger.

I admit I was skeptical at first. And I know you will be as well. That's why I've put together this special video presentation of Hammy completing his latest jump. Click on the video below to see for yourself.

No Hamsters Harmed

Luckily, no hamsters were harmed in the making of this extraordinary movie. Hammy announced his retirement shortly after completing this jump but, like many other famous daredevils, may find the lure of the spotlight to be too great to sit on the sidelines for long.


That catchy music featured in the video was created by Kevin MacLeod from Incompetech.com. He's got a ton of great stuff like that at his site.

Hammy may or may not, on occasion, work with an accomplice a stunt coordinator named "Mister." Google "Mister Hamster" if you'd like to seek out the services of Mister.

Got something to say about Hammy? Leave a comment below. But please don't ask me why Hammy wasn't wearing a helmet. I'm sure that even this one would not have fit.
