Default New Hedgehog some behavior and health questions..

https://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/3052 ... p_activity

There a video here of her shes seems wired and hyper active. and i dont know if this is normal or if shes scared.

As I said on the facebook page, it only looks like a hyper hedgie, I don't have experience with hedgies at all so I am not sure. However, keep an eye to make sure that her behavior doesn't transform into some kind of obsessive-compulsiveness and everything will be alright She is stunning <3

It could just be her being a bit spazzy but it also looks like it could be mites. Since she has come from another not so great home, I'd treat her for mites just to be sure.

I'm willing to bet her previous home had her on a water bottle and she broke her teeth chewing on it...
