my hedgie was about 263 grams when i got her at 6 months, it's been about 4 months now and she's up to about 340 grams. she seemed kind of underweight when i got her, and i think she's grown some, basically, what are healthy weights for hedgehogs, and what is considered obese? i'm worried about her getting fat. :p

There is no actual "heathy weight" for hedgies, just because they come in all shapes and sizes. As long as you are weighing her weekly and keep track of her weight gain/loss, you'll see what weight she plateaus at. At the constant weight, she should look more like ( ) or | |(if she's a runner).

You'll SEE fat rolls around her leg/ arm pit areas and she'll have difficulties rolling into a ball if she's obese.
