Hedgehog

Hedgehog


Hedgehogs are amazing little creatures that make fascinating pets. They are fairly low maintenance, with a diet consisting mostly of insects. Fruits, vegetables, and cat or dog food make good additions to the hedgehog's diet. When choosing a hedgehog as a pet, look for one that is young, healthy, well-tempered, and tame. Hedgehogs are a bit nervous, and will roll into a ball when threatened or picked up. A handled, tame hedgehog will unroll fairly quickly and lower its quills for some quality bonding time
