Default Nails that never grow??

I had shade out today for some away time from her babies and i went to check her claws to see how god awful long they would be after 2 months of no trimming and.... nothing, they are the perfect length. all but her dew claw, which was really long before she had babies, but i couldnt get it clipped. and idk if its still long or if it broke off or something. hope she passed that on to her babies XD because Olivers nails grow like weeds. is this normal? or could it be like a cool genetic mutation or something :3 what ever it is i like it!

I've noticed my hedgehog trims her own nails, mostly her front ones. Really I've only had to trim one back claw on both feet for the past 3 months the rest she chew to a trim length.

Hedgehog feet are so cute.

I've only had to clip one of Pippins back claws once since bringing her home last month. The rest are still so short, but they look so perfectly manicured! I love their little toes... well when not covered in poop boots, but still, they are just so cute to see when they really get moving or standing up.

If she's managing to trim them on her own, consider yourself very lucky.

Also, I'd highly recommend that you quickly complete some sort of ritual (knocking on wood, etc...) to ensure that you didn't just jinx yourself by posting that her nails are perfect without you having to trim them!!
