Default male or female?

Hi,
i recently caught a desert hedgehog.He always curls up so i cant really tell if he's male or female !
My gf said she noticed "Testicles".I remember reading somewhere how to tell if its male or female, but it didnt mention anything about males having testicles, so i was wondering, is that true?
Also, i see on youtube people having hedgies and they have fun and play with them, mine curls up if u even come close. Can desert hedgies also behave like the garden type and become friendly to humans, or will they always be wild?

Thanks in advance

Could you post some pics,please !! We would love to see a wild african hedgehog. Our hogs are not european they are african too and we keep them inside as pets. The testicles do not show...a boy will have what looks like a belly button.

Yup, Qatar is right next to Saudi Arabia...the thing is, we use to have them all over the place. But since its a tiny country and people are bulding new buildings every second, we dont see them so much anymore
So my plan was to catch a male & female, and get their babies and take care of them and just return the parents to the desert.
Sometimes i have to drive around in the desert for hours just to see one
I was thinking about going tomorrow night to find a 2nd one

so....can a Desert hedgie be kept as a pet or not?
Will they ever get used to us and feel safe around humans?
