Smile Rant.

Okay so I'm just YouTubing and I come across this "breeder" and he thinks he's just the most amazing person ever. Says mesh wheels are fine. Says hedgehog food is perfect. Breeds animals he doesn't even know the gender of. Keeps a brother and sister together at 2 months 1 week.


Come on! Get ur act together man! If you can't give your animals the best then don't breed them and give people bad info! Seriously!

Omg had to. If you wanna know his youtube account(s!) Just PM me and I'll tell ya. Makes me so angry!!

You mean earthling1984?

The mesh wheels bothered me, but it was the feeding live mice to hedgehogs that really pissed me off.

Why would feeding live mice to a pregnant hedgehog bother me?

Why did it really piss you off? A lot of people here feed their hedgies pinkies. They're high in calcium and low in fat.

I can understand your anger at the youtube user...they're really a piece of work. I looked at one of the videos and in the comments he made hedgies sound like very low maintenence pets that 'anyone can take care of'. I made a point of correcting him and explaining how hard work hedgies are, and of linking them to LizardGirl's book.

The pinkies though, there's nothing wrong with that. I've heard of a lot of people doing them. Animals eating other baby animals happens in the wild all the time. They're nutritious and the hedgies love them.

I think it's the feeding live part. At least that would be what bothers me.
Have you actually seen a hedgie eat a pinkie? They tend to chew a bit, spit out, chew and gnaw some more. I personally could not subject a live pinkie to that.
I have no problems with feeding whole or freshly killed. I'd just feel sorry for the pinkie if the hedgie decides to chew from the back end first.

This guy is very uneducated and has no idea what he is doing. He keeps his hedgehogs in less then ideal conditions. He lets them free feed, gives them crappy food, wrong wheel, keeps wheel in with nursing mom and I'm pretty sure he has them on cedar shavings if I'm not mistaken. It's hard to tell though. I have tried giving this person information on what to do right and he is not receptive. In one of his other videos he has all the baby hoglets in the sink practically drowning because the water is so high. When he drains the water the poor hedgehogs are completely exhausted. I was really upset when I seen that video.

I'm not sure what to do. Maybe someone else can try getting trough to him..

If "lots of people do it" this would be the first I've seen or heard of it. It's certainly not on any of the approved treat lists that I've seen, and there appears to be one sentence in LizardGirl's book about it.
