Default Skullmageddon: Notes for prosperity

Tomorrow it will be three weeks since little Skullmageddon came into my life. So far He has been a wonderful addition, bringing me both joy and wisdom. I have learned a few things about him. These notes are for myself and fellow hedgehog lovers, in the hope of better understanding the behavior of hedgehogs.
  • He doesn't like the picking up process, or the being woken up process. on the whole being woken up makes him very irritable.
  • He seems to bite at fingers, or if he's under blankets ,sometimes he will just got for bare skin. Not every time however, he will sleep on my bare arms and I can pick him up and he doesn't bite me. Just if something wakes him up and there is bare flesh.
  • If he is awake and exploring under blankets and finds bare flesh most of the time he will bite.
  • Biting is just one of the ways he has learned to communicate. I need to teach him that it won't get him what he wants by not putting him down.
  • He wakes up quite a bit after a full bath.
  • He loves to snuggle in a nice warm place, and my armpit is one of them.
  • Its best to scrub his little feet during foot baths with a tooth brush. Its also a good idea to scrub his quills. If I don't scrub his quills I get irritated skin from his quill pricks. His quills get yuck on them during his wheel running and nightly playing and thats what is irritating my skin. So long as I give him a scrub and keep him dry and warm it doesn't bother my skin when he pokes it.
  • He is a good snuggle buddy and reminds me that lots of people are afraid too and most don't get to ball up and spike.
I'd rather questions be answered with more personal experiences then a bunch of links. Please and Thank you!

Yes I have read the hedgehog book and I think its wonderful thank you.
