Hey all, I'm Ariel. I'm 16 and new to the world of hedgehogs. I'm an avid animal lover and have been around them my whole life, particularly small animals. I have owned many hamsters, guinea pigs and ferrets. However I have not yet had the pleasure to own a hedgie, much as I would like to. I am going to be getting one hopefully in December from a litter that was just born. I look forward to meeting all of you and learning more about hedgehogs so I can be completely prepared when I do get one!
