Default NEW HEDGIE!!! I LOVE HIM :)

My brand new Hedgie I just got him today. His name is Jose. I'm not sure if he is FULL albino, he has black eyes, not red. Also, right in the middle of his forehead, he has 1 single brown quill. He is 1 of a kind

Jose is gorgeous, where did you get him?

There isn't a half Albino type of hedgehog and Jose definitely is not an Albino. I would say he is a Reverse Pinto.

Love the last photo the blue brings his creaminess out more.

Are you going to keep using Carefesh?

Congratulation on Jose! His color is very interesting! Can't wait to see more pictures of him.

Thanks everyone, I don't know about the carefresh. he seems to love burrowing in it which I am happy about, but at the same time it's always going in his water bowl and is a very messy clean up. I am debating on switching to a fleece or something that i've seen a lot of your guy's pictures have.

As for the color not being half albino, that was just me saying it because I have never seen a single brown quilled hedgehog where the rest looks albino yet has black eyes .

I got him from an all exotic pet store around me in NJ called Fins, Feathers & Furs. The guy seems extremely knowledgeable and my sister gets her sugar gliders from there and they are great tempered and healthy. He also take every animal to the vet before selling them and they come with a cert. of health.

I'm feeding him what the pet store guy told me to, it is all from Exotic Nutrition. 2 Part Hedgehog complete, 1 Part Insectivore-fare, and a sprinkle of Hedgehog Booster Vitamin Supplement. I haven't attempt any little fruits or snacks yet.

I do have one concern, when he was up and about last night, he was scratching every so often. Maybe once every 10 minutes or so while I was awake, but that was only for about an hour. When he wakes up with the lights on to eat drink and poop before sleeping again, he doesn't scratch at all. I've read that Mites = frantically scratching, this doesn't seem to be the case. Could it just be dry skin? or Quilling since he's a baby? or maybe he doesn't like the bedding?
