We will be in Phoenix with babies on Sept 8th 2018 !!!!!

What do we eat???

An Afican Pygmy Hedgehogs main diet source is quality cat food. They also love 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???

Well, besides looking adorable all the time, these little guys LOVE to run. They are nocturnal so they sleep all day and run all night. They, beleive it or not, also like to snuggle! 

 

 

What are we??

Hedgehogs are NOT rodents, they are actually a 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 up to 9 years. 

 

 

What kind of cage do we need?

Hedgehogs require a minimum of 2 sq ft of floor space in their cage, more much more is recommended. A simple storage bin style cage works great! But there are many other options. Our cage must stay at least 72 degrees or warmer. We need a running wheel, constant access to food and water and a hideout to sleep in. We like fleece, aspen or paper bedding.
