What do we eat???

An African Pygmy Hedgehogs main diet source is quality cat food. They also enjoy a wide variety of treats such as wax worms, meal worms, unseasoned eggs, fruits and veggies. They are lactose intolerant and grapes and avacadoes are toxic....so stay away from those!

 

 

What do we do???

Besides being adorable all the time, these little guys LOVE to run. They are nocturnal so they sleep all day and run most of the night. Beleive it or not, they also like to snuggle! 

 

 

What are we??

Hedgehogs are NOT rodents, they are actually an Erinaceidae. Their closest relative is the Shrew. 

How long do we live?

The average life span of a hedgehog is 4-6 years but they have been known to live 9 years or more.

 

 

What kind of cage do we need?

Hedgehogs require a minimum of 2 sq ft of floor space in their cage, but much more is recommended. A simple storage bin style cage can work great! But there are many other options. The cage must stay at least 74 degrees or warmer. Hegdehogs need a running wheel, constant access to food and water and a hideout to sleep in.
