Default can they speak to each other?

Hey guys! I have question that maybe there's no answer to but I was wondering if hedgehogs can communicate with each other without visually seeing each other. In the time that I've had Ashes I've noticed that some habits that Ashes has Quinn or Sasha has picked up and vice versa. For example Ashes sometimes enjoys being on her back and getting a belly rub. The other day my husband had Quinn out on her back which she normally hates but allowed it and he rubbed her belly. This has never happened with her ever. There are many other examples to be coincidence. They never see each other so we've came to the conclusion that they have secret conversations at night lol. Any thoughts?

It's like that with any animal really. They may not have an entire actual alphabet and whatnot, but I do believe all animals are capable of communicating with each other. Pick any animal that has more research and exposure, there are always many different changes in pitch that means different things. You should just set out a recorder one night and spy on them :P

I should! I find it so interesting that they can't even see each other not to mention Ashes is blind so there has to be some communication. Anyone else with 2 or more hedgies expericed this? I'm just curious.
