My baby hedgie is also an explorer and gets a little puffy when I first pick her up still. However, when you pick hedgie up, don't flinch even if he's huffy and prickly - just pick him up anyway. He will come to realize that you're not going to hurt him.

My hedgie loves running all over the place rather than snuggling/cuddling (unless she's just waking up). I like to sit on the floor with her and let her run around the house (but grab her before she darts under the couch or behind the tv) :lol: Explorers are fun. You could try setting up a pen/play pen for your hedgie to run around and sit in there with him so he's used to you. If he's done quilling, go ahead and handle him as much as possible, even if it just means touching him lightly as he runs about. He'll get used to you soon enough.
