Default growling hedgehog

We got a hedgehog yesterday (first timers). She was very friendly yesterday with us, but today is growling at us when we get near her. Should we leave her alone for a day or two or move forward with interaction so she starts to get used to us?

My hedgehog never growls. Usually they just hiss, hicup, and jump. But some hedgies just make strange noises. I would let her get used to her cage for a little bit and then try to handel her.

I think, and someone please correct me if I'm wrong, it's really important not to back down from them! They'll try to train you to leave them alone when they make noises. Establish a routine right from the get go and he/she will get used to it and be more comfortable

My husband and I are first timers too. We've had Lucy for about 6 months. We were advised to interact with her for at least a half hour every day. At first, she hated it, and it wasn't pleasant for us either, but now she's a sweet snuggler. Hang in there. It gets better.
