Default Re: Weirdest thing your hedgie has ever done?

I have always loved that story and found it fascinating.

I find it more fascinating as time goes on because of the minor (or maybe not so minor) differences in instincts and behaviors we saw in the first generation of pets (the wild hedgehogs, like Thelma, who were imported), and many of today's generations. While Thelma still had the instinct to ball up and roll when she fell, we see more and more reports on this forum and elsewhere of pets that just land in a thud and never curl up at all. And sadly get injured because of it.
