I know this is an old post, but...
I contacted the USDA when our store began to carry hedgies. I called the petstore and asked some basic
questions... all of which they answered incorrectly.
i also asked them if they had a liscense to sell them to which they stated they "didn't need one." Which is false, of course. So.. i e-mailed the USDA and no more hedgehogs in our petstore!
