    So, I know that there is a pinned thread for biting, but I was curious to get some actual feedback on this. My hedgehog is about 7 months old, and I adopted him from his previous owner about a month ago. He loves to climb on me (and just about anything) and anoints with all kinds of new smells...

    I got Oliver about a month ago. He's two years old and when he lived with his old owners, his cage was two cages connected by a tube. I guess he was very difficult to get out of the tube and would usually be hiding in it. When I first got him, he was very scared all the time. He's not scared...

    Hello, all! So I've recently become a new hedgie mommy within the past month. My little spikey boy is named Robin Quilliams. I know, I know, I really like puns, haha. And it differs from the typical "Sonic" name. But to keep on topic ... Robin has been at my condo with my boyfriend and I...

  5. 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...

    I have a rescue and he's been with me for a little over a year but he will be two in August. When I first got him, he would bite every time I got him out and it would bleed. As I worked with him, he got a lot better. He bites me every now and then out of nowhere but I don't let anyone else near...

    Hi, my hedgehog was acting strange yesterday (hyperactive, running around and seeming to try and flip herself onto her back and biting her stomach) and I've noticed that she has a scab and some bite marks on her stomach now. She's not biting it right now, but what should I do to get her to stop...
  9. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    I’m not sure where I should be posting this but I just had Pepper out in the bath (empty bath) to roam around so that I can keep an eye on him. I was stood in the bath and Pepper started to sniff around my socks. He has a tendency to bite bare skin so at the moment I’m trying to keep that away...

    Hi I'm new to this forum but I've had hedgehogs as pets for 5 years now. I've recently brought home a little girl called Penelope and for the first three weeks she was perfect.

  14. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    So, my hedgehog is pretty sassy in general and I love all the personality she has but lately it's not cute. Every time me or my boyfriend (hedgehog dad) takes her out she bites one or both of us.

    Hello everyone! So I do have a question about my Hedgie. I got him almost 2 months ago and he's about 5 months old.

    I got two hedgehogs about a week ago. Petunia is 2 and is the mother of Poppy who is 1. Everything was okay for the first couple of days, I could tell they were a little bit stressed from the move to my house but that was to be expected. The lady I bought them from had them for about a 9 months...
