Default Quills, Quills, Quills.

Okay. So what exactly are the different aspects of quills? One of my hedgehog's has quills that are both easily flexible, and he also has some that are a bit harder to bend, which is normal, right? But today I found a quill that snapped when I bent it. It was a larger one, so I'm not sure what happened... I took a look at him and the other quills, and they seem normal.

Why would it be hard to bend? It appears to only be around the band where it's hard to bend, and where it snaps, there in the middle it appears to be a bit thicker, and white.

Could this be a temperature thing? Seasonal? He doesn't have dry skin.... Nothing around his quills...
