This hamster is more flexible than we are and we don't know whether to applaud the hamster or reevaluate our own lives.

We gotta give it to this hamster: No lame hamster wheel for him or her. No, this hamster is way too cool and talented for that. While all the other hamsters are resting on their laurels and going around in circles, this hamster is enacting a sales pitch that involves one backflip after another, pretty much ensuring no prospective owner will backflip on their decision to snap this little pet up.

Someone get this hamster some spandex and a pommel horse, STAT! The 2016 Olympic Games in Rio are just around the corner and this hamster looks keen to get its samba on.
