That's normal. They often have a few long hairs coming out of it too

But why do you have a hedgehog if they are illegal in your country? That's extremely irresponsible. What if your hedgehog gets really sick? Are you going to let it suffer and die?

I agree with Draenog. What if this had been really serious and your hedgehog needed to see a vet? It's very irresponsible of you to not have a vet. You can't treat it on your own. I don't even want to think about what would happen if your hedgehog needed to be euthanized for any reason!!

Because of your response, i'm guessing that we aren't the first ones to tell you this and that you really don't care. Correct me if I am wrong but it seems like you are putting your own selfish needs of wanting a hedgehog above the animal's welfare.
