Default My Hedgehog is balding help!

My hedgehog is about 2 years old. He?s already had a quilling stage when he was younger but recently he has starting balding near his face. He seems normal nothing else is wrong. His stool is fine, he?s eating,running,drinking, and not quilling. But the bald spots are really worrying me. Please help!

I suggest you take your hedgehog to the vet and get that checked out.

That looks like some type of skin infection, possibly fungal. You need to take him to a vet and have a skin scrape and culture done.
