Hi! Please share your hoglet pictures here.

All hedgehogs are cute, but I find them the cutest when they are about 2 1/2 weeks old, just after opening their eyes. That's why I'm going to share pictures of my 16 day old hoglets :)

These 2 are really good natured. No problem whatsoever palying with them.

Maybe someone can ID the left guy for me as well? I'm embarassed to ask from the color help forum, I think I've already asked a lot. :lol:


They love getting tickled around the area of their little things, maybe it's the same sensation as mom licking to stimulate pooping?

See, he even spreads his legs open, wanting more. :lol:


Here is a very short video of him getting tickled:

They are absolutely adorable! Congrats!

*And I mean no offense to you*, but... do people usually touch hedgies there or am i missing something? I've just never heard of it before. I wasn't sure it's an appropriate thing to do? I'm not familiar with the idea.

They are very cute. :)

We have very few people on here who have actually responsibly raised hedgies, so I don't know what others you'll have contributing...

Color cannot be determined until 9 weeks. Until then, they could be anything. Even a raspberry sparkle delight.

Haha, I have no idea.
I was just trying to tickle his stomach, but there wasn't much of a reaction, so I went down a little bit more, then there he was spreading his legs. If you see it in person you would definitely know that he is enjoying it. Hehe. You know how puppies kinda close their eyes a bit when they are getting petted? It's exactly like that. :)

Thanks lizardgirl and numo.
I thought lots of people here have had hoglets before, guess I was wrong. Haha.

Anyway here are some more pictures.
I just love the way he rests his head on the tip of my palm

I bred them. Only 3 years of experience though.
Hehe. You can't buy them at this age, they'd surely not make it.
I'm not from the US, and in my country, hedgehogs are still virtually unknown for a lot of people. There were not probably any hedgehogs here until about a few years ago. Now it's becoming more and more popular for a niche group of people.

When people see me holding one in public, they can't decide whether it's a koosh-ball or a porcupine. :lol:
