Come see our three adorable hedgehogs. They have bright eyes and wiggly noses and are just waiting for the right person to take them home.
Hedgehogs are quiet nocturnal animals, but they do make happy snuffling and purring sounds. Hedgehogs are insectivores and require special high protein-low fat food readily available at pet stores. Never feed your hedgie grapes, avocados,nuts or raisins as they may harm your pet.
Life spans for hedgies vary from 9 years to the average 3 to 5 years. They fit into the palm of your hand and weigh 1 to 1 ½ pounds. Proper socialization is necessary so you must pay attention to your pet every day. They don’t like loud noises or rough handling.
Hedgehogs need a water bottle, food dish, and a den to hide away during the day. They must have an exerciser wheel as they need the exercise. Hedgehogs do not need another hedgie to keep them company. They prefer to be by them selves. However, hedgehogs may enjoy soft cat toys or stuffed animals for entertainment.
