The breeder I purchased Whyte from reassured me that they do not have any more health issues than others. I am hoping some other people respond as I'm curious too. Am hoping I wasn't just told that to make the sale. So far, so good with him, if that means anything! He's about...four months old now. He is more sensitive to the light than Riley when he's being carried around the house. Congrats on becoming a new hedgie owner!
