Hedgehogs are interesting animals. The hedgehog I had originally bought was a female and she ended up giving birth a month after I got her. This situation ended me up with five hedgehogs at one time. Raising them was absolutely amazing. Although these animals can be friendly I found it to be that the males are a bit friendlier and regular interactions with humans is absolutely necessary. They are pretty easy to keep clean and do not smell too bad as long as they get regular cleaning. They are absolutely cute but are not as social as some of your other animals. They are also nocturnal and unless you sleep like a brick wall you need a room were noise wont escape.
