"This site's information is excellent. A couple of things: please be careful of commercially packaged foods labeled as specifically for hedgehogs. Some lack the protein these insectivores require to be healthy. A poultry-based, inexpensive grade of catfood (NOT hairball formulas) is just fine. Be careful of gathering bugs from your yard for your pet; some can have parasites, etc. that can harm your sweet hedgie. Store-bought mealworms and crickets (live or freeze-dried) are safe. A bit of well-cooked chicken or turkey will be well-received, also. African hedgehogs are decended from hedgehogs that DO NOT hibernate, so if one of these pets gets so cold it becomes sluggish and tries to hibernate, it can die. So please keep your baby comfortably warm, but not hot. Their nails need trimmed once in a while, so use baby clippers. If your hedgehog tries to ball up, never attempt to force it to open; you can cause serious, perhaps mortal, injury to your pet. As you build trust in your hedgehog, it will usually allow itself to be groomed more readily, which also eases the stress of visits to the vet. Enjoy your hedgie!"
