    Hi All - I'm a new hedgehog mom, I just rescued Walter off of craigslist. He's got an amazing personality but isn't very active. I was thinking of adding a second level since he likes to climb a bit. I have a C&C cage, but the walls are solid and not wire to help with heat. I was thinking of...

  5. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour

    Hey all! I got my hedgie Roach 1 month ago, he's about 6 months old and very friendly. We bonded pretty fast, and cuddle and play for about 30 minutes a day. He's using the flying saucer, because I couldn't find a regular wheel big enough for the chubby little guy. I read everything I could...

But the smaller one, Odete (the pet store told me she was 2 months old but I think she's more like 6 weeks) is not doing as well. She was doing great until about...
