The Hedgehogs Are Growing

Just thought I would share these new pictures of the babies. They are so cute and have great personalities. That could be because my son, Aaron, plays with them every day.

Baby #1 is the runt of the bunch. It has had the hardest time getting use to be handled. It is a medium grey color like her daddy. It likes to like our hands.


 Baby #2 is a light carmel color like its mom but has pinto markings like its dad. It also likes to lick our hands. Also has the best, most gentle personality.


Baby #3 has a wonderful personality too. It is a dark grey with the cutest little black mask. Some kind of super hero that wears a mask would be a good name for it.


I hope you enjoyed the pictures. It's really hard to write about something without giving it a gender, but I can't give the answer away.

  4. Sher, they stay with their mom for 6wks but I like to keep them another week or two to make sure they are eating good.

    Rachel, they are cute and are good, clean, easy-to-care-for pets, but they are not always so cuddly. They can be moody and when they are moody, they are hard to handle without getting poked. The key is to handle them often while young bonding with them, so they know you.
