Default Any good book recommendations?

Hi! I'm considering getting a hedgehog and was wondering what some good books to read on the subject were. I've already read "Pet African Hedgehogs: A Complete guide to care" by Kimberly Goertzen but still want to learn more before I adopt one. Thank you!

That's definitely the most comprehensive reading material available, I'd say. Lurking around the forums here is also a great way to learn 😊

That book by Kimberly is the most accurate, up to date material out there right now. The other "hedgehog books" are out dated and contain a lot of wrong information.

Thank you, I previewed a couple others but they seemed pretty inaccurate. I've already been searching through the forums, but are there any other good websites out there I can trust? Most of them look pretty unprofessional.

I'd say you're in the right place! This is a great place to ask any questions you might have as well as be able to browse through tons of "old" threads. I've learned a lot from other situations people have gone through and everyone has always been friendly and knowledgable if I've posted a new thread. 👍

I'm actually reading Pet African Hedgehogs. A Basic Guide to Care. By Kimberly Goertzen, a while a go, such a very insightful one... with this on hand and this forum plus some friends w/or w/out hedgie experience. I think I can't go wrong

Yeah. I would stick to the forums. I was reading this one hedgehog book and it said you could feed grapes/raisins to your hedgehog.

So yeah. I just like to read up on here.

This is a really great comprehensive guide. You can buy the hard copy, but this is the free online version!

Thank you all! I have a cold so I've just been staying home and reading through the forums all week and they've been really useful so far. Happy Easter!
