Nope, not at all true. There are people that say boys are better. In truth, it depends on the individual hedgehog. There are no personality differences between the sexes.

Just reading the first paragraph of that article makes me think the author doesn't have a clue.

That article is from 4 years ago and contains a bit of misleading information. I'd stick with info that is more up-to-date, especially websites (such as HHC) where there are experienced hedgie owners and breeders able to give great advice. :)

I have two males. One is absolutely the sweetest hedgehog ever ever ever. The other wishes I would LEAVE HIM ALONE FOR CRYING OUT LOUD. :D

Even with other animals, dogs and cats, I just don't think gender determines friendliness. I have two of each sex of different breeds of dogs and they just have their own personalities. The girls aren't more nurturing, the boys aren't more protective, I really don't think anyone would know their sex without looking.

I read that whole article and it was very vage and poorly written. Most of that information was just...bad. :(
However, getting back to your question, the answer is false.

People tend to think that male animals are more outgoing and adventurous and females more nurturing. There may be some fragment of truth to this, but in my experience gender doesn't matter.

Also, I have heard that female cats can be moody sometimes, even if they are neutered (phantom PMS). I don't know if other species experience this or not.
