Data in the form of absolute and relative weights, coefficients of correlation, and prediction equations are presented for the growth of 8 principal organs of 150 young hamsters. The body weights range from 1 gram, at birth, to 16 grams, the weight at weaning. Unlike the mature animal, no significant differences can be demonstrated between the growth rates of the heart in either sex in the immature hamster. Author
