Default Mystery hedgie sound?

One of my hedgies makes a sound every once in a while. I've never heard the other do it.

The best way I could say it sounds like, is a humans grumbly/hungry stomach growl.

Has anyone ever had this?

Hmm...when does it happen? Does it happen when you go near your hedgie when he's wheeling or eating? Because mine will make a growling noise if I do that. It's kinda funny, haha

Sometimes when hanging out on my lap and then sometimes right after I move the igloo.

I dont really have much experience with hedgehogs since Tiki is my first, but from my experience I think they might do it as a way to communicate that you just did something they didn't like. Mine will do it if I go up to his cage while he's wheeling, so maybe its kind of like them saying "Grrr. Imma scary animal. Stop doing that or I'll attack." Except you and I know that they're more likely to huff and puff and ball up then actually attack,

My older female does it... it's her way of saying WHAT THE PAJAMAS?!?!?! You again?

Mine does it too! Seems to be when he is very angry: First comes the huffing, then the "grumbling" sound you described, then the hissing. When I first heard it, it sounded like his stomach was upset like when a person has gas/indigestion and their stomach makes those weird sounds... but I think it is more of a growl to warn you they are not happy.

I think Amelia believes that she's a big ferocious thing when she growls, then she's all like, "Aww ok, I'll do cuddle time if you realllly want me to..."

Haha! Spike makes that sound - I call it his "wind up toy car" sound - it sounds like one of those little toy cars that you pull backwards a few times then let go and
it takes off. He makes that sound when we first get him out of the cage and he is not happy about being disturbed from his nap.

Diggory does this. My boyfriend says it sounds like Perry the Platypus.
