    Hi, I have an adorable 3 month old hedgehog, Komaki, who I've had for about 5 weeks now. The first 2-3 weeks were great. She was super sweet and loved cuddling and being held. But ever since she started quilling a couple weeks ago she refuses to be held and has gotten very huffy and nippy. She...

    Lol y'all does anyone else collect quills that have been shed? Or is that like Crazy Hedgehog Lady behavior that I should quit? Miss Penelope Pibble is quilling like a psycho and I put all her tiny baby quills in a jar like parents keeping their kid's baby teeth. Here's a picture of her saying...

    Hello all, I'm back. So a while ago he was losing quills due to quilling. I made sure that they were naturally falling out and they were so all was good.
