  1. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    I have a 6 month old baby boy. I got him when he was two months. When I got him from the breeder, he was so friendly, he didn't even puff up. Then after a night with me, he wouldn't calm down, which is understandable. It's been 6 months now and he still goes crazy when he's out. If i'm quiet for...
  2. General Questions
    Hello, thought I'd make a profile in order to ask some questions. We got our hedgehog almost two months ago, and he is now more scared than ever. I soared the internet for advice both prior and during having the hedgehog, but these advices have often been conflicting. Recently we've attempted...

(he will be two in December) and we got off to a bump start but in about two months he was very well behaved and would even let those he didn't know hold him and pick him up without making a fuss.

Whenever I move, even...

    My hedgehog is roughly 6 months old and seems to be quite healthy. Over the past several weeks he has developed the habit of biting me. This wouldn't be a big problem except he bites very hard. It hurts a lot and if I don't get him to stop soon, he breaks the skin. I have switched soap and I...

    I have had my hedgehog for almost 2-3 years now. I will admit she has been neglected as of recent. I drives me crazy when I don't have time for her. She has always been hard for me to care for because she is vey aggressive. No matter how much time I spent with her she was very mean and even...

    I am a completely new hedgehog owner and I feel like I am in over my head! A friend of mine gave me a hedgehog (Simon) for my 21st birthday about 4 months ago. The previous owner of the hedgehog did not give her a lot of information and told her that he was around 1 year old. For the first...

  10. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    Ok so I have had my hedgehog for a week now and she is about 6 months old. I was just wondering if there is anything I can do to get her to become more friendly towards me.

    Hi everyone! I'm a new hedgehog owner. I got him about 2 weeks ago from a guy who didn't give him a lot of attention (he's about 7 or 8 months old). The first week went well, I did the t-shirt trick and I picked him up twice a day for a half an hour each time. He rolled into a ball when I picked...
