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.

My breeder told me that when they get their final set of quills they won't be so sharp, but not rounded. Over time you will get used to the quills. I am used to the quills now (after several weeks of handling hedgehog at least 15 min a day) and can pick up Herisson with out something in between me and the quills.
