    I am bringing home my first hedgehog, Ian, from a breeder on Sunday. The breeder is about an hour and a half away. I bought a small pet carrier for him in the car, but I am wondering what I should put in the carrier, and what else I should bring for him. Also, what should I do for heating in the...

    I've been the custodian of a hedgehog for a little over two weeks now. Finkle is an albino male who will be three months old on June 15, and has been quilling for about three days now--possibly longer and I just didn't notice until the quills started showing up on my clothes and in his bath...

    Hi, I'm a first time owner and I got my hedgehog Rigby a week ago. He's 7 weeks old now, and he seemed to be adjusting pretty well. The first couple nights he slept a lot, but I did hear him running, eating, and using his water bottle a bit. Over the next few days he started to be more awake and...

    I had a hedgie as a small kid, he passed when I was 9 and I swore I would never get another one. Needless to say at 23 I adopted an albino hedgie named Jasper. I love him dearly, he's my baby for certain I'm a little rusty though and even more nervous since he is completely blind.

    I adopted a 6-week-old hedgehog about 4 weeks ago (I named him "Peanut Pepper Page") and I don't feel like he is getting used to us or improving much as far as bonding or taming. Peanut still doesn't want me to pick him up and will spike me every time I touch him unless he's already in my hand...

    Hi! I just got my hedgie a week ago. The breeder gave me a weeks worth of food, but didn't tell me what she uses. I know she had a better kind of food and then a lesser which she mixed. So I'm looking for some help picking out the right food (theres so many different opinions out there!) And...

    I got my hedgie Bilbo early this June, and he is about 5 months old. The only time he's ridden in a car was when we took him home from the breeder, which was about a 30 minute drive.

    The previous owners of my new 10 month old hedgie, Turi, kept him in a not so clean environment. When I got him with his cage it was very dirty and needed a good scrubbing. I cleaned his cage and everything in it and he seems to be doing fine and is running on his wheel, eating, etc. However...
