  3. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour

    I'm posting on here constantly because, not going to lie, I'm freaking out every moment that my hedgehog is munching on her hoglets or they are being hurt.

    Some of my hedgies babies ( four days old ) are pretty pink, and others are a lot darker. I'm just curious if that has to do with what color they will be or what it means!
