We come across a lot of cute animals in our search for stories. It’s time-consuming, arduous, adorable work, all for the public good. Not all heroes wear capes.

When we discovered an Instagram account for hamsters that has garnered 27.2k followers, @nococo.k, we knew we had to investigate. Here are 19 reasons why we think four hamsters — Azuki, Marshmallow, Ramune and Tyrol — are crushing IG right now.

1. More Hamsters Are Better.

Four hamsters make up the crew, including Ramune and Azuki, above.

2. Three Hamsters Are Better Than Two.

Then there’s tiny Tyrol.

3. Four Hamsters Are Better Than Three.

And, finally, Marshmallow, a power-eater.

4. Especially Phenome-Noms.

See? What did we tell you?

5. And Ham-gry Ham-gry Hammies.

Case closed.

6. They Roll Deep.

7. And What A Handful.
