I believe yes. We took her vet and so far she doesn't have any other issues than quilling and I was reading it is similar to baby teeth growing on human babies. It is a hard period for them.

She is so nervous since then. Running like crazy until find a place to hide. Doesn't want to come out if there is no food when we are around. I am hardly finding a balance between leave her alone and having play time. Still she is nice sometimes and sleep next to me during day.. I must add my hedgie is quilling too much. As I understand some hedgies have better quilling time. Mine have not..

So I believe some hedgies are having better quilling time or just nicer to people
And I guess our hedgies have similar personalities. Mine is not scared mostly. Just being aggressive ^^ I am making her calm at the beginning always. Then taking her out from her cage.

Quilling can make them VERY huffy because its so uncomfortable for them !! They dont like being handled as much through it. Although I got really lucky with Holly as she didnt become like that and she stayed very much chilled out and calm !! Some just react worse to it.

They like finding places to hid as it makes them feel safe as they are prey animals. Maybe try sitting with him next you, and then let him push his head behind you a little so he can hide his head.

Also some hedgehogs arent as cuddly as others, heave you tried having him run around a hedgehog safe room with you sitting there places to hide but would say do it latter so its dark when you do this and see how he acts.

As your in a warmer country it
Might be that he doesnt like beinn on you because of your body heat. I know that during the summer Holly prefered laying next to me and hiding her head behind me than laying on me and cuddling because of the extra body temp.

I did not know quilling can affect them. Thanks for the shout out. Igor's going through quilling, but he doesn't seem much more huffy than he usually is. So I guess, his personality and the quiling thing clashes, lol or maybe I'm just not noticing since he does sometimes seem bipolar.

The hedgehog saferoom sounds like a great idea, and it made me curious as to how he'd act. I definitely have to try that. He's super active at night.

And the body temperature part seems to make a lot of sense. My mom does say I'm alot hotter than I'm suppose to be. My temperature, of course.

And my cousin has a hedgehog too. That's how I fell in love with the creatures.
Now her hedgie has a completely different personality than mine.
She's a cuddler, and slept on my body no matter the heat. She bonded with me the first time I held her.

I wanted to have a hedgehog like my cousin's, but I got my boy, and I wouldn't trade him for anything. Even if he hates - loves me.

Haha he may just not tolerate warmth as much !! All hedgehogs are differnt much like us and prefer differnt temps. He may not like the heat as much.

Also they dont like being handled and touched as much when killing and they espciellay hate being on their back (some do quilling or not)

Warmer months Holly prefes to be next to me rather than on me.

Oh and I know its a differnt thread and everything but your keeping them cool in summer, cant you ask your cousin or does she live in another country or cooler place ?? Because if she lives in the same area she may know or have some ideas ?? Or are you both new to it ??

Daw, Holly sounds like a sweetheart!

She lives in another state, and she's new to this too. Plus, they are alot more financially fortunate and have AC's their whole house through.

Holly can very much be a sweetheart. Unless its my brothers or my gran, shes an angle. Or nail cutting time she turns into a little ninja !!

Alright so shes a little bit luckier and didnt have to find a way for cooling down

Lol adorable.

Yeah she's luckier. But for someone with the money, she doesn't really look after her hedgehog to the fullest.
But I guess I can't smacktalk family.

Hi, actually how do owners make their hedgie curl like the first picture?
I'd love to take a pic of mine like that but don't know how.

Haha Igor just bites me if I try to do that. So I've given up trying to make him ball up.
