I'm looking for a size chart of hedgehogs. How big they are on average at each age

I will be getting my first hedgehog at about 7 weeks old. What size should it be?

And any tips would be appreciated, I have been reading as much as I can about them

Thanks :)

At 7 weeks he could be anywhere from 100g (or less) to 300g (or more). In other words, there is no set size for ages. :lol:

It's like us!! You can't predict the size your children will have.

At 7 weeks, he's still a baby. He could be between 100 and 300 grams.

Adults could be between 300 and 600 grams. ;)

And some get over 600 g and are still a healthy weight for them. My biggest has been 750 g and could still curl up into a tight ball with no problems. And I've met a couple that were pushing 900+
