One day, a few months ago, I read a post, some one guy talking about a hamster world domination. It was weird but interesting. The post has not especifications, but still, It is funny and interesting how the hell hamsters dominated the world. Anyway, I was thinking about how that could have happened, and the following occurred to me:
1.- First, an overpopulation: Hamsters can reproduce at an early age and usually have numerous offspring. It is not necessary to imagine a complex and difficult scenario for this to happen, just look at the rats, which are basically a plague and are close relatives from hamsters 2.-Second, diseases: Hamsters can directly transmit diseases such as choriomeningitis, among others, and can indirectly transmit Black death. And let's not forget that they can also transmit diseases through their urine or excrement, contaminating and making the earth and other animals sick.
All this combined could make hamsters the new dominant species, and if there is no extreme change in the next thousands of years, they would evolve into humanoids except that they would be rodents instead of primates.
Finally, the post, asked the question about the problem of drinking water, so in a process of thousands of years, the water should have recovered a large part of its purity it would only be a matter of time to see if the evolved hamsters make our mistakes or have a better awareness of their environment.
So, what is your opinion, I would like to know if it is really possible, or if there is something I omitted.
