Dear Hedgehog Lover,

If you are passionate about having a small pet, did you know one of the cutest and easiest to care and inexpensive pets to raise are -- hedgehogs!

Owning and raising a hedgehog is easy to do, all you need is a small corner of a room and a cage to raise them. Many people have seen hedgehogs on television and in pet stores, and are intrigued with the tiny and lovable miniature hedgehogs named -- African Pygmy Hedgehogs!

They are cute; with their little noses always twitching and fund to watch as they prance around on their little feet. Hedgehogs are a very cheerful pet, are pleasant and when properly socialized, can be a joy to take everywhere with you.

Being a hedgehog owner is a unique experience and while hedgehogs are often labeled as cage pets, the hedgehog can be a very adaptable pet. They can be housetrained and will enjoy simply playing and cuddling with their owner. In addition, the pets are quite social when they are properly handled and many will adapt very well to travelling.

If you are thinking of buying a hedgehog as a pet...

Then you will find that hedgehogs often bond very well with their owners and having your own hedgehog is a joy!

So what exactly is a hedgehog?

Hedgehogs belong to the mammal family called the Erinaceinae. This is a family of shrew, like mammals, that can be found in Europe, New Zealand, Asia and Africa.

Hedgehogs are a nocturnal animal that live primarily on their own and are rarely seen in the wild with other hedgehogs, unless they are a nursing mother or are mating.

In the wild, hedgehogs live in burrows and primarily feed off of insects, making them an insectivore. While hedgehogs have been around for millions of years, the name “hedgehog” can be traced back to the mid 1400’s. The name is derived from Middle English and comes from the words “heyg”, which means “hedgerows and hoge”, which describes the pig-like snout that hedgehogs have.

Although hedgehogs do have quills, they are not related to the porcupine and their quills are actually quite different from those of the porcupine as they are softer and do not hurt you quite like a porcupine’s does.

Hedgehogs can be domesticated very quickly and make very friendly small animal companions.

Hedgehogs enjoy human company, and they will interact with the people who care for them.

Raising and caring for hedgehogs can be a fun and rewarding experience, simply because these tiny pets are a truly warm and friendly companion. The benefits of owning and raising hedgehogs are a pleasure for young and old alike!

The key to a perfect hedgehog pet is to find one that suits your personality so you are sure to have a good match between you and your new pet.

I want to help you to take your first step towards owning a hedgehog...

When I was looking to purchase my own hedgehogs many years ago, I discovered there was very limited information available for help purchasing, owning, raising and breeding hedgehogs.

After searching for many hours for hedgehog information, as well as talking to hedgehog breeders and hedgehog fanciers, I finally decided that there was a definite need for a comprehensive book all about hedgehogs that covered hedgehogs from A to Z.

With that thought in mind, I created this brand new book, called "African Pygmy Hedgehogs and Hedgehogs, Hedgehogs as Pets: Facts and Information".

You can get everything you need to know about keeping hedgehogs – including handling, the different breeds and types, their health, housing, breeding -- you get everything you need to know to keep healthy and cute hedgehogs!

How many types of hedgehogs are there?

There are 14 species of hedgehogs and while this book does focus on the care for the African Pygmy Hedgehog, it is important to look at the different types of hedgehogs that you can purchase. Remember that when you are buying a hedgehog that you make sure it is the species of hedgehog that you desire.  

The book covers all 14 types of hedgehogs:

  • African Pygmy Hedgehog

  • Algerian Hedgehog

  •  Brandt’s Hedgehog

  • Chinese Hedgehog

  • Daurian Hedgehog

  • Eastern European Hedgehog

  • Ethiopian Hedgehog

  • 4-Toed Hedgehog

  • Hardwicke’s Hedgehog

  • Indian Hedgehog

  • Long-Eared Hedgehog

  • Somalian Hedgehog

  • South African Hedgehog

  • Western European Hedgehog


The most common type of hedgehog found in pet stores is the African Pygmy Hedgehog.

The African Pygmy Hedgehog, which this book primarily focuses on, comes in many different colours, and is the domesticated variety of either the 4-Toed Hedgehog or the Algerian Hedgehog.

The African Pygmy Hedgehog, that weighs between 250 to 500 grams and 5 to 8 inches in length and are usually about the size of a small guinea pig.

They are characterized by their small raccoon-like faces. The African Pygmy hedgehog has a broad forehead and well-defined cheeks, and gives them a very cheerful appearance and has bright black eyes and a cute pointy nose.

There are several differences in colour with African Pygmy Hedgehogs and they range in color from: albino, apricot, cream, pale grey, light brown to dark brown, rust, dark grey, black and even a mottled or mixture of colors.

In the book, I cover the wide assortment of colours and while they may seem similar, the colour difference between the colour variations, such as the 95% white in the Silver Charcoal White, can make the hedgehog look completely different from a Silver Charcoal.

This is great information for someone that is interested in owning a particular color of hedgehog and for hedgehog breeders when mating different color combinations.
