My friend decided he wanted to get two hedgehogs and breed them. (against my suggestions against it) Since then he has gave his male to a friend. He has his female and her 2 babies who are about 3 weeks old. He brought them to my house since he is going to be on Vacation for 2 weeks and needed someone to watch them. Since I used to breed them and still have one of my own, he figured Id be the best sitter. (and I am happy to do it cus I miss having little hoglets around) When he got here he showed me her (she's very friendly) and the babies. He was holding one for awhile. I held the other for a little while. When we put them back in she decided to carry the one he was holding around everywhere with her. She wasnt attacking him but she even ran in the wheel with the little hoglet in her mouth. The little hoglet did self-anoint while he was holding him. I just want to make sure her hoglet isnt in danger. After we left them alone for a little while she seems to have left him alone. I'm afraid to leave them for any amount of time without supervision in case something happens. Any idea as to why she's doing it and if the hoglet is safe? I've never seen a mother do it before.
