Unhappy Males vs. Females

Hi. I going to be getting a hedgehog in the near future and one question I had was regarding males versus females? Are their temperaments any different from each other and if so, in what way are the different? I have been noticing that some breeders charge more for females than males. Why is that? Thank you for your help!

I do believe females cost more than males because they can be used for breeding.... please correct me if I am wrong.

there waz athread on this a few days agoooo?????????? ummm, but it depends on the hedgies temperment, every hedgie is unique and different!!!

and it depends on the breeder for price, some charge the same no matter what, color sex, ect., but some charge like 50 dollars, or however much more for males, or females, for whatever reason!!!!

Generally there are more boys born than girls which is often why the price is higher.
