Default My 2nd, "first" hedgehog

Thought I'd officially introduce my new hedgehog.

[side story]
For those who may remember, I was having an extremely difficult time with my first hedgehog this year. The breeder and I finally concluded that that particular fella did not like me. He was (and now is again) quite sociable with the breeder. But he absolutely refused to unball for me. It got worse the more time I spent with him. Huffing, balling, clearly not happy.
Breeder & I agreed it wasn't in the hedgehog's (or my) best interest to force him to stay. She took him back and said he instantly improved. Later we chose one from a new litter she had.

Fast forward to now. I've had this new fella (also named Mecki) for a week. He is the polar opposite of the first. He is easy to handle and he's super active.
