So how could you not fall in love which such adorable little creatures at hedgehogs. And at around $40 how could you not own one! So I know what you're thinking. "But aren't they spiny?!?"
Their backs are covered with rows of short prickly spines and their bellies are covered with soft fur. When threatened, they roll in to a tight ball with just a mass of spines poking out. When relaxed, the spines lay almost flat.So its no big deal that they have spikes as long as you don't pet them the wrong way!
They reach in a size of around 5-8 inches in length and live from 3-8 years and as a bonus they are fairly low maintenance pets. Hedgies also have a peaceful and humorous nature.
So I think I might get one. They're cute!
