Arrow A Silly Question

I have a silly question. :P I have noticed that baby hedgies look more pokey than adult hedgies. Are babies' quills sharper?

Every time a hedgehog quills, they grow larger quills. So the quills you see on a baby are thinner, and smaller. So they can puncture skin easier than an adult hedgehogs quills. From my experience a balled up adult hedgehog is easier on the hands than a baby hedgehog. I'm guessing that my reasonings above is why.

I thought that might be the case. This has been a silly question in the back of my mind for a while now. You obviously would know from experience how sharp a baby's quills are. It looks as though you have been doing a fantastic job with your babies. Keep up the good work. Thanks for the reply.
