Default The New Pygmy Hedgehogs

The new pygmy hedgehogs you can keep like a pet hamster

They are small and prickly and are the very latest must-have pets.

Would-be owners are will happily wait up to a year and will travel any distance to get their hands on an African pygmy hedgehog.

The cute pets are a quarter of the size of a normal hedgehog and are fully domesticated and don't carry diseases or fleas.

They love being handled and rarely curl up in a defensive ball. The animals were first bred in captivity less than 10 years ago in America but have recently been introduced to the British pet market.










They grow to just two pounds in weight and eight inches in length and have a lifespan of between three and five years.

Unlike hamsters, they are carnivorous and feed on a diet of cat food, chicken, beef mince and turkey.

As they are nocturnal the cute critters come alive at night and can run up to eight miles a night on an exercise wheel.

Damn. I thought this was a thread about Obama-ites.

My sister's had one for quite a few years. She even has a playpen for it. It's very tame. Comes when called, runs up her arm and sits on her shoulder, keeping her company. She adores the little rascal.
But I think I better double check on if it's a Pygmy one or not. And just how long she's had it. Seems to me it's at least 4 years, but you know how time apart goes. Ya lose track.
