Hey so remember how my hedge snow was pregnant and had a litter of 6 baby hogs 2 of the hogs came out to be boys I gave them away first after they weaned so I wouldn't have problems with the females getting of the people I gave the little boy to was a science teacher in my school she loves animals and teaches Ap environmental so she was really excited to get a hedgehog.yesterday I was able to see the little guy and I noticed he is way smaller then my frost.frost is one of the babyhogs I my question is is it normal for males to be smaller then females or is frost just getting fat? Also frost and this little guy aren't fully grown I can tell by when I put snow and frost next to each other she still has a few months until adulthood.heres some pics of frost and snow(frost is the one in the first picture)

Hedgehogs come me in all sizes so you can't expect them to be the same size as other ones.

I often notice that males seem smaller! But this is just a personnal observation, it's not scientific whatsoever. Although, Snow is really cute with his big ears haha
