Default Teething?

Do hedgehogs teeth? I was holding my 9 month old male hedgehog Maximus wraped in a blanket and he was just lying there gnawing on it...there was nothing on it but his scent. Could he be teething? I dont know if hedgehogs even do teeth...I haven't found any teeth yet. He also loves to chew on toilet paper tubes that I give him to play with and sometimes his little log house. This has been going on for a few weeks now. Should I be concerned? Nothing seems wrong with him...he just likes to chew on things.

Anything wood isn't good to have around them they can contract mites from it.

Traditionally most hedgies do not chew or bite though I am sure there are some they are not rodents and once they lose their teeth they are gone sometimes the biting can be due to an underlying issue as well.

My 7 week old hedgehog bit me this morning and he wouldn't let go. He has also been chewing my shorts. Is he teething, biting or bored?

Just FYI, this thread is 2 years old and people aren't likely to respond. It's best to start a new thread with a specific title for your question.
