Another Newbie with a question

My family just got a 1 year old little girl hedgie for Christmas. Prickles seems to be doing well and adjusting to all our sounds but, I have noticed that she goes potty EVERY time I wake her up and take her out for play time. I have a litter box with some of her droppings in it to help encourage her to use it but I am sure she only goes when it is play time out side of her cage. Does this get better as she gets older and use to her new home or is this normal?

Most hedgehogs will not learn to use a litter box. If she does, you are lucky! As for going on people, some just do that. When they get older they can control themselves a bit better.
