Default Breeding my hedgehogs

I tried to put my female and male hedgehogs together and the results were concerning. Our female started biting the male’s neck. Is this normal? We had to separate them because we were very scared. We never saw our female get agressive before.

First off, have you researched hedgehogs and have owned at least one for it's entire lift, until death? Do you have registered breeding stock that is confirmed to be WHS free for at least 5 generations? Do you have a vet that is available 24/7 for pregnancy complications and at least $1000 for potential vet bills? Are you prepared to possibly lose all the babies if the mother rejects them or kills them? Are you prepared to lose the mom in labour? I know it sounds like these things aren't likely to happen but they are very likely. Unless you can answer yes to all these questions please don't attempt to breed your hedgehogs.

Now to answer your question...yes sometimes the females will become aggressive, sometimes the male will. If they are trying to actually hurt each other then you shouldn't put them together again.
