Default Favorite hedgie habits/behaviors?

What are some of your favorite things that your hedgehogs do?

I love when Earl Grey's head quills move forward, so his face looks all grumpy and squashed~
Also, when I wrap him in a blanket for late night cuddle time, he'll turn the other way from the air hole I leave open for him. He'll doze for a bit, then turn around and poke his head out of the hole to look at me. He'll only turn back around to hide his face again and sleep after I talk to him a little~

Anointing cracks me up its such a funny goofy behavior. So far Thistle only anoints with 2 things: carrots and my boyfriends shoes (which have nothing in common)

Fitz just anointed for the first time ever tonight and it was just hilarious!

If I handle him when I have painted my nails recently (I collect polish and paint them every couple of days) he sniffs and licks my nails and then tries to nibble them before realizing mommy's fingers are not food. I have decided that my little boy has the same affinity for nail polish that I do. I'm trying to not handle him after I have painted my nails though because I am sure that's not really good for him.

Earl Grey went to anoint once, and it freaked me out at first. I changed the bedding because the first one wasn't working out. As soon as I went to put him back in, he started chewing it. I thought he was trying to eat it, so I tried to make him stop. Then he started anointing. Problem solved~ lol

Sometime's I have to roll Percy out of his pouch to take hm out and he'll pop out in a sitting position with his legs straght out and his arms resting on his tummy. He looks like a panda bear the way they sit and it just just cracks me up, especially with his expression "Oh mum, not again, I just woke up".
Also, when we're outside and he's roaming, I'll put my hand infront of him then start walking backwards and he'll follow my hand where ever I go. He's so cute.

I do not have a favorite but one I really like is when they bite down on something, won't let go, then start to jump up and down. It's so cute!

I love it when Jorja and I get into an "arguement" about her liner diving. She will head under the fleece and I will scoop her out and put her under her blankie in the morning when she is all comfy and cozy. (sorry sweetie) But then, she will, like the defiant teenager she is, crawl out from the blankie and shake her head "NO" and head under the liner. We do this scenerio several times until Mommy (Me) decides it is time to just give in and go to work. She is just so adorable shaking her head like a stubborn child.... UGH. They really do get their way don't they?? I guess it does pay to be CUTE. >>: )
