Default What is the normal mating ritual like?

I'm just curious as to how it all works - i think theyre fascinating.
Do they ever fight or is it just and easy act. Do they have get to know each other first, or is it an instant thing? Has a male ever been totally not interested or is it just natural to "go for it"
Thanks for your time guys

I can explain it more by voice but haha... The boy will squeak like a maniac and chase the lady. She'll usually hiss back. So it sounds like SQUEAK SQUEAK SQUEAK HISS HISS SQUEAK. But the girl will prickle her quills up, and stick her butt out. I mean OUT. It looks hilarious. Then the boy....mounts... and sometimes bites her quills until he's....done. Then boom boom bam babies grow and pop out about 35 days later.

My males are shy though. They act uninterested and clueless the first time they're put together, then the second time, he kind of gets it and takes him a day or so to actually get around to doing the deed. (the first time mating) then after that, hes CRAZED after he sees a lady. He runs around like a crazy man squeaking all perked up looking for her. Even if he smells her on my hands.

Here's a good video... It's graphic. Hedgehog porn. Anyways, you can see how the lady sticks her butt up in the beginning. its hilarious
