Smile Sudden idea, need opinions!

Hello everybody,

I was just lurking the forums as I usually do, and I noticed some comments in the thread Jenga Block Staircase about how a lot of YouTube videos on Hedgehog care are outdated or opinionated.

Then I thought, what if I made new videos and gather topics/information from the forums instead? It would most likely be in the style of a voice narrator talking over videos of hedgehogs, animations, and typed information. Much like the Animal Planet video, except mediocre video editing quality LOL.

Unlike the current videos, I'd want to make the new ones have pretty specific information (so less "cat food" and more "dry cat food, recommended brands, and suggested protein/fat percentages"). If allowed, I'd link back to these forums as references. I'd also want to keep it less opinionated; for example, if we were talking about water dispensing, I'd mention pros/cons about bottle vs bowl, and tips for both (the gluing-bowl-to-ceramic-tile trick, etc) rather than bottles suck or bowls spill everywhere.

... I brainstormed a lot more than that, but I don't want to get too into it if it's a bad idea, haha.
What do you guys think?

I actually had this same thought in the shower earlier today! Not necessarily "me" making the video, but if everyone from the forum contributed some of their own clips and information so it's a "hedgehogcentral.com" video. I don't think any one of us are necessarily experienced enough in hedgehogs to make our own video, but altogether we're pretty darn good

I was going to ask if people would send me home videos of their hedgehogs to use for the care videos, but that's what I meant by "I don't want to get too into it", haha.

I agree that we're better with information as a community rather than individuals! If I could get the idea going, I'd want to use this thread to ask if I'm missing anything or if I should change something before I start recording.

For example, I'd post something like:

Before You Get a Hedgehog
- remember that they're nocturnal
- they're not naturally cuddly and are defensive creatures
- needs to be handled for at least 30 minutes for bonding and temperament
- needs 74-80F temperature/mention heat set ups
- light for 12-14 hours
- info on hibernation
- breeder/whs/pedigree mention
Then I'd see if anybody wants me to add anything else in or to correct inaccurate information.

There'd be topics like Basic Cage, Heating/Lighting, Bedding/Litter, Emergency Babies/Breeding, Food/Treats, Wheels and Toys, things like that.

I know Animal Planet has these Animal/Pet (can't remember which one) 101 things where it tells about the pet. Maybe do it in that format. Also, I'm YouTuber so if you'd like, I can help you make it and get it out there. But I'm not like MILLIONS OF SUBSCRIBERS, just to let you know.

That's a really great idea, if you have the resources to do it I'd say go for it! It would be great to have a good hedgehog youtube channel to watch, so few are active or have good information.
