Default Quick Question

Can I house 2 same-sex hedgehogs if they have grown up together?

If they've grown up together, it generally goes better than with two that haven't, from what I've read. But it'd still be a good idea to keep a careful eye out for disagreements, just in case. Also keep in mind that it can be more difficult to spot health problems since it can be hard to see who had the bloody poop/pee or who's not eating as much as usual, etc. Then you'd need to separate them anyway to see who's sick, which takes extra time until you can figure it out & get that one to a vet. But if they've grown up together, it can also sometimes be more detrimental to house them separately, if they enjoy the other's company.

Its also less likely for two males to be able to live together than it is for females.
