Meet Dolly the high-wire hamster... who hauls herself back onto the tightrope when she takes a tumble
A high-wire hamster who loves to show off her circus skills almost came a cropper when she slipped off a tightrope in the middle of a routine.
Luckily she was only inches from the ground, and would not have suffered injury had she taken a tumble.
These adorable photographs were taken by keen photographer Mirko Waltermann, 37, at his home in Hamm, Germany.
He said: “Dolly is very curious and funny - she likes to play and hang on the rope for a couple of minutes or so at a time before having a break and starting all over again. ”
“She really enjoys performing for us and I'm pretty sure she is showing off. She likes to be the centre of attention. ”
“My daughter Lara has had her for three years now and she doesn't seem to be slowing down, if anything it is harder to get her off it. ”
“As much as she loves it though I think her favourite trick is to hide somewhere so all the family has to search for her.”
