So how exactly can I do this without getting bitten or pinched? Lol. Her nails are getting kinda long.

A good way to do it is while they're in a bath. They can't ball up then. That's how I clip Lily's and, although she struggles a bit to get away, she doesn't bite me, and doesn't freak out too horribly about it. I managed to get her back feet both done tonight, along with a couple of nails on a front foot. :D
Another suggestion is to double-team her, have someone try distracting her with treats while you clip. For hedgehogs that really like to annoint over things, you can offer a leather glove or something to annoint over.

They're the first posts in the forum, that stay at the top. The one about clipping nails is under the health forum, in the hygiene section (at the top, before new post).
