I was on my goodreads page when this add popped up. Forgive my ignorance, but what kind a hedgehog is this guy? I'm assuming it's a hedgie.

The ears kind of scare me but he is cute. I'd still rather have Ender.

Thanks for the info!

Check out this hedgehog!
Aw, it's like a pug version of a hedgehog!!!! Dogs are of course the first animal I look to for comparison as I work in a dog supply store. Very cute and strange looking. What kind of hedgehog is she?

She is a Brandt's hedgehog. I picked her up from a rescue. She had frost bitten ears and a broken foot.

I am looking for anyone that knows anything about Brandt's hedgehogs to learn more about her care.

I've been researching this type of hedgehog for a little while now because I find them fascinating. I am currently taking an Animal Science course in which I want to incorporate the Brandt's, African Pygmy, and the European hedgehogs into my research paper. If you haven't already, I found this website very informational... http://www.arkive.org/brandts-hedgehog/paraechinus-hypomelas/biology.html I will go to the University library and see what scientific articles and/or other publications as soon as possible and let you know of my findings.

How is the healing process going?

The ears are healing nicely. The vet took the splint off yesterday but the leg is still swollen and she is not using it yet. I forgot that last week, while at the vet's, she blew a snot bubble. On Sunday during the show, she did blow another snot bubble, so we are doing another week on antibiotics.

I did see that web site.

I wish I would have met you at the show, Amanda. Did you get some pictures of her?

I picked her up at a dog rescue. We figure she was most likely smuggled in from Iran. At this time, I do not believe that she is illegal in my state. I have spoken to the USDA inspectors of Colorado and they said it was fine there.

I did not... sadly. I wish I had gotten to meet you too! My grandmother passed at 4 am that Saturday so I only competed and then my boyfriend and I went out to explore to get my mind off everything and to breathe in some fresh mountain air. Are y'all going to make it down here for the Dallas show? I know it is only one day, but I think it is going to be lots of fun!
