African Pygmy Hedgehogs

Hedgehogs are remarkably cute little animals. Their backs are covered with prickly spines and their bellies are soft and furry. When threatened or scared they roll into a tight ball. When relaxed their spines lay almost flat. They make a great beginner exotic pet as they are easy to care for and just plain fun. Despite their impressive display of little spines they can be quite friendly, and when they feel secure, their little quills feel like a hairbrush. Hedgehogs love to explore and run around. They also love critter balls and it’s a great way to keep them in shape. Our baby hedgehogs start weaning from mom at around 5 weeks of age and are then handled daily and socialized when they are sent to their new homes at 6-8 weeks old.

What is a Hedgehog?

What exactly is a hedgehog? No they are not porcupines. They look very similar, but they are not related at all. African pygmy hedgehogs are insectivore opportunist mammals, not rodents like porcupines. A hedgehog's closest relative is actually the shrew. An average African Pygmy Hedgehog will fit in an adult man's cupped hand weighing between 1/2lb to 2lbs in weight. African Pygmy hedgehogs have a thick coat of spines, varying in color. There is no fur under the spines, but soft white or dark fur covers the belly, neck, face, and legs. Sight is relatively poor, but hearing, smell, and taste are well developed in most pet hedgehogs. Hedgehogs are easy going, non-aggressive and not attention seekers. They are great pets that can be handled by anyone. Well-adjusted hedgehogs go to strangers with ease. If you are going on vacation for a week they normally won’t be depressed or angry. When you come back they will willingly go to you as if you never left. They are easy to keep as pets, all the supplies you need can be found right in our online shop and/or picked up in store.
