Congrats on your new baby. My little girl did that also for a few days. I just pick her up gently with some fleece and then I just put her on my lap. She would unroll and then want to hide again in the fleece. Give her a few days and she will come around for you hopefully. Now when I take them out there unroll almost right away and run up and down me and the couch. Please post more pics. Good luck and congrats again with your new baby!

Welcome to the land of hedgehogs.
Also, I doubt he's a salt and pepper. They're very rare.

Are they? I didn't know that, something I love about this forum is that I end up learning so many things here
Which is the most common color?
