Default Re: My hedgehog doesnt like to lay on his back?

Most hedgies don't like it, it'd be like holding a human upside down. It exposes their belly and they can't support themselves with their feet. There are hedgies that tolerate it, but even those ones I wouldn't say enjoy it. I wouldn't recommend trying to hold a flail-y hedgie on his or her (frankly, I've mostly seen this with girls, but that's a personal observance) back, since they obviously don't like it.
