Hi guys. I've had my hedgehog Simba for about four years now. He's never had any health issues, but a couple weeks ago he developed this white circle on his eye. I haven't taken him to the vet, because he still runs around and acts perfectly normal. I'm starting to really get worried though, because it seems to have gone from a small circle to covering his whole eye. Does anybody know what it could be or has had this problem with their hedgie? Thank you!

I think it definitely looks like a cataract. I've never really seen one in a hedgehog, but I've seen many in other animals. If it is a cataract, remember that hedgehogs don't rely much on their sense of sight. He's acting normal because he feels normal. So if it is a cataract, just know that he isn't suffering from it.
