Default Can you "age" a hedgehog?

Im sure i will get some flack for this but I got my two girls from a pet store. One was there long enough to have a few litters for the pet store and the other was pribably 4 months old. These are guesses though. Is there a way to tell a hedghogs age without having monitered the litter from birth?

Once they are adults it's almost impossible to say how old they are.

Hi there!
At what age are they considered adult, and what visual indicators do I look for to determine adulthood?

My hedgie is in my signature - previous owner also says he's 4 months old.

Apologies for thread hijack, I thought it was a relevant question

Not sure what the indicators are, my hedgie is also 4 months old, but they're considered fully grown at 6 months old.
