  1. Hibernation
    Last night I believe I might have had a hibernation attempt. My smaller hedgehog is typically pretty grumpy and has a hissy fit every time I do anything around the cage and when I go to feed him he always runs out to eat right away. I was out of the country for the last two weeks and only got...
  2. General Questions
    Hi, I have recently purchased a hedgehog back in April. She's about 8-9 months (previous owner did not give me exact date) and has been a bit of a nuisance since the start. I do love my hedgehog with all my heart but recently the problems with owning her have been getting bigger and less easy...

    Hello. My hedgehog Riceball is two years ten weeks old. I gave him a bath yesterday and I noticed his testicles seems slightly enlarged. I don't know if I'm just seeing things (I'm hyper paranoid when it comes to my hedgie) but they seem bigger than usual, and slightly red. I asked my bf for a...

    My mom was watching her while I went to go get the soap (I was about to give her a bath) but she wasn't paying attention and my poor hedgie fell off of the kitchen counter! She landed on her feet, it appeared so, my mom says. She is not limping or acting any differently. I went ahead and gave...

    Hi everybody! So I'm new to this. I just got my first hedgehog as a gift about 3 weeks ago. I named him Sonic! I was told he's 8 months old and is a male. I'm not exactly sure how to tell if that's correct though..Anyways, today I was holding him and noticed a little lump on his belly near his...

    I lost my Watson Sunday morning, and I really don't know what happened to him. Several months ago now I noticed he was suffering from very watery poop. His poop smelled downright foul, far worse than my other hedgehogs and was very runny. No mucus to it, just bad looking poop. I kept an eye on...

    So I brought home my hedgehog four days ago and he seemed to be doing fine. He spent his first night exploring and settled into his cage well. However yesterday he didn't really get up or move at all except for about half an hour when he got up to eat. Tonight when he woke up he ran on his wheel...

    This is long, but please, anything will help. I have a 2.5 year old male hedgehog. He is my everything, and I just want to help him in anyway. If you can give any advice, please do! Last Tuesday, 7 days ago, I noticed my hedgehog did not eat during the night like normal. I did not think much of...
