Hi, I am new to this forum and am looking to purchase a baby hedgehog. I live in Houston, Tx and was wondering if anybody knew anything about this pet store(http://www.sandsexoticanimals.com)..?! If anybody knows any local breeders here in Houston, please let me know as well. Thanks! :)

Skimming their website, I noticed their care sheet which had some outdated information " In captivity, the staple of their diet can be high quality commercial hedgehog food made by Pretty Pets" to outright dangerous such as "Hedgehogs do not require sophisticated housing. They can be housed in aquariums. They are usually housed in pairs or individually. Untreated wood shavings or aspen bedding can be used but should be changed frequently." There are more errors throughout the sheet.

I'd be wary of purchasing a hedgehog from a pet store that seemed so ignorant of the animal's needs. There have been several members who unknowingly ended up with pregnant female hedgies after they had been housed with males.
