daredevil hamsterWe've seen a lot of animals doing a lot of crazy things. We have never, however, seen a hamster attempt such a daring trick. That's why when we saw Hammy the Hamster complete this Evel Knievel-esque jump, we were floored. Don't fret, however, according to Spot Motorcycle:

...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. Phew.
Now that you know Hammy made it out alive, you can fully enjoy his brave stunt. (We suspect he might have had an inanimate stunt double, but that's another story...)
