So after doing my research and looking for a breeder, I made a two hour drive to meet the breeder I found and bought a hedgehog from him. He's 6 weeks old as of today, he's salt&pepper, and he's absolutely adorable. He ran on his wheel just a few times today, ate a bit, but didn't drink any water until I put a bowl in there for him. Other than that, he really slept all day. I'm hoping he learns to use his water bottle, I suppose he just has to learn his new home.

I named him Kush. When I get a chance, I'll definitely post some pictures. I'm excited and really happy with him. :)

Just wanted to share.

It is a GOOD thing that he doesnt like the water bottle, bowls provide a much more natural drinking posistion and bottles can be very dangerous.

Yes, I'd suggest just letting him keep a bowl as they're usually safer. No risk of chipping or breaking teeth on them. Can't wait to see pics of him, congrats on getting the little guy! :)
