I just adopted a new little hedghog. She is still quite young, about 4 months old. I have tried to hold her with out a towel and when I do she pokes me really hard and I start to bleed. Everything I read said that they shouldn't be that sharp they should be rounded. Have I read wrong? Should they be that sharp? Could I be handling her wrong cause I just set her in my hand I don't squeeze or anything. She still is not used to me. I am right now trying to make her trust me. Does anyone have any good ways to make her trust me and not ball up. She really is nice she takes treats out from my hand but I just can't touch her. Please any advice would be great.

Where did you see that they're supposed to be rounded? LOL no, they're not supposed to be rounded. and to get her used to you, let her sleep with one of your old t-shirts or something. once they get used to you and are comfortable with you, they will put their quills down and let you pet them.
you should still hold her every night, just hold her in a blanket instead of your bare hands, until she gets used to you.
