Aquariums (30 gal. or larger), plastic storage containers (must have holes drilled in for ventilation), or rabbit/ ferret cages all work well. We have used both rabbit cages and plastic storage containers, and they work great. Any cage you choose must have a solid bottom, not wire. In the cage you will need a wheel to run in (very important), food dish, water bottle, and a sleeping area. Some hedgehogs will also use a litterbox, this is optional.
Your hedgehogs main diet should be a high quality cat food, supplemented with insects such as mealworms or crickets. Fruits and veggies can be given in small amounts as treats. Always have fresh water available.
Do their quills hurt?
They are not as sharp as they look. When picking them up, scoop them up from underneath where they have soft fur so you don't get poked. Once your hedgehog is used to you they will lay their quills flat, and they feel much like a hairbrush.
Do they smell?
No, they do not smell as long as you keep their cage clean.
Do they bite?
No. We have never been bitten by any of our hedgehogs.
Are they good for kids?
I would not recommend them for anyone under the age of 10. They are fairly easy to care for, but most younger kids do not like the feel of the quills.
Should I get more than one?
They are solitary animals and should be kept alone. Occasionally 2 females can get along together if they are from the same litter. Males, and male/female pairs will fight.
Do they need vet care?
They don't need shots, but a health checkup never hurts.
Can they play outside?
Our hedgehogs enjoy occasional outside playtime. Supervised only, of course.
How much do they cost?
Depending on the coloring 250-300
