This has been such a wonderful place to learn about hedgies! I have been thinking about getting one for some time now and have been pouring through every post possible. The only negative is that the closest breeder is 4-5 hour away! But my husband and I will be visiting friends this weekend and I have made arrangements to visit a local breeder there. This will be our first "real life" experience with a hedgehog. I felt it was important to see and experience them in real life before making our final decision. I have to tell you, though, I already have a list of names. And a portable heater. And a travel carrier. And an order in from that worm guy. I know it's a bit silly, but I figured you would understand.
