A hedgehog is a small mammal with spiky spines on its back. Hedgehogs appear in a handful of different colors, specifically deep brown, pale brown, white and black. They occasionally have black or deep brown markings on their faces, as well. The predominantly nocturnal animals’ necks, tails, faces and stomachs all have short and roughly textured fur. How much a hedgehog enjoys being held or cuddled is different for each one. It depends on the personality of the individual hedgehog and how much handling the hedgehog has been given.
Due to the fast turnonver of these pets, it is difficult to provide the exact date of birth.
The babies are mostly in between 7-11 Weeks of Age.
The color and gender is not guaranteed.
