Hi I'm a newbie to hedgehogs but am having a blast learning about our little Prickle butt! She's gruummmmpppppy. I got her from an auction at 6 weeks and she's 8 weeks this week. Her quills are definately easier to handle so I'm happy bout that. I get her out and hang out with her usually 3 times a day if possible but am actually going to be getting her a snuggle sack. She's not liking to be picked up but I will be her pain in the butt till she does like it. I want her to be a great little pet and realize she won't be if she's not worked with. Thanks for the add and all the great info!
