OK...just to be devil's advocate...

In the wild wouldn't our little friends pretty much eat only insects and pretty much scavage any thing else they could eat...

I not trying to start anything here, but just feeling sometimes we are going a little obsessive compulsive....
African pygmy hedgehogs have NEVER existed in the wild, they are a captive cross breed of at least 2 and as many as 5 other breeds of african hedgehogs...Also, in the wild a hedgehog has an average lifespan of about 2 years, but through both diet and protection from predators that number is now closer to 5 on average and as many as 10 from many reports that i have read....which would you rather have?
