A lady named Janae bought a hedgehog and the girls were over the top helpful. We got her cage, food, litter, just everything for her. She came out with her family of siblings and cousins and to make a long story short, she cheated the girls. They work so hard doing a good job. Sad. We had our first crook!!! MUST BE PAID WITH CASH AT TIME OF DELIVERY OF YOUR BABY.
There are actually two color groups with 92 different colors. The white-bellied and Algerian, Color cannot be determined really until after 9 weeks. Their color is juvenile when born. After nine weeks you can determine the actual color and that will fade after a year old. The white-bellied hedgehog has smaller body, ears, and shorter nose. The two colors of white-bellied and Algerian have been bred and colors never mattered. They don't mix.
Buy a high quality CAT FOOD. We use Royal Canine cat food I was mixing Orijens Cat. It's human grade and they just don't like it and pick over it to get to the Royal Canin, so I stopped buying it. The food should be high in protein and made from meat or chicken. They love meal worms, crickets, cooked hamburger, eggs. Another treat is fruits and vegetables. Beans, peas, corn, apples, and carrots. Even Watermelon! We give you a food sheet and little binder with all the info to take home.
Your little Hedgehog will love to eat. It's your job to feed appropriately! They get fat if you overfeed just like anything else. Give the right amount and a great squeak free wheel to run those miles at night!
We did an enormous amount of research and picked our own common sense rules. We feed snails, meal worms and crickets at present. Who knows, we could change it or keep it.
I believe you have to be a little OCD to do this. Clean is good. Hedgehogs don't stink. If you clean the cage once a week and wipe out the wheel daily you will never smell any animal. We buy the thick baby wipes and have a covered small trash can. Easy as can be. If you can't handle small things like this then don't get a hedgehog or any animal for that matter. We make our own "rugs" for the bottom with fleece and sherpa and they love them. Our hedgehogs love snails.
Your Hedgehog is small but very active. Sleep all day so when you try to play or want to spend your human daylight hours with them, they may not apppeciate you as much as you do them. Just remember going on a great vacation and you had to get up at 3AM to be at the airport. You know you're in for a wonderful week but the initial start is not so fun. That's your hedggie. Play with them anyway. The hiss they give is just a prayer that your aren't trying to eat them! Scoup them up gently.
Cages, cages, cages and more cages. What a headache. Store bought. Homemade and wonderful or homemade and a disaster. I am a firm believer after all my failures and wasted money to do it right the first time. Get what you invision and what you like that will work for you and your family. Close to 4' by 2'. Little less ok. Ours inside is 33" by 22". Have room for toys and things we think they need. Never saw a tiny cottage in the wild but we have them now! Ha
This can also be confusing. It was for us. We don't keep our house 75 degrees and up. Then you think of reptile lights, heating pads and other ideas. We decided to go with a safe room heater. It works perfect! With the fleece/sherpa rugs on the floor we are all fine. Lights that are radiant ceramic plus the hood they screw into and then hot to the touch just didn't work for us. Floor heater, problem solved. Keeps the room 75 degrees or whatever we set it at.
