Unhappy Weird Noise??

Hello,


When my hedgehog spikes up and rolls into a ball, she makes this weird growling noise. It sounds like it is coming from inside her. It is pretty loud. Is this normal for hedgehogs??

UPDATE: A few minutes later, he made a huge poop does this have anything to do with it?

You're probably hearing the hedgehog hiss (at least what I call it). It sounds kind of like a motorboat or helicopter, and does kind of sound more like its coming from within rather than from their mouth. As for the poop...might be related, he might have been trying to go to the bathroom and you disturbed him. The hiss is usually a sound of a displeased hog, I've yet to find a good video with it in it.

There is a hedgehog hiss ( sounds like a old fashioned train) and then there is a hedgehog growl lol which as named sounds like a growl.

It is a defensive warning a bit more verbal that the hissing and popping.
