Any idea why our hedgehogs tube?
Probably because they like crawling into things, in search for a hiding place? Loki doesn’t like tubing, he just ignores tp tubes. He sticks his head in sometimes, but he never walks around with it.
Does your hedgehog attack anything thats metal and rather small? My hedgehog will start biting/attacking any neclace I wear, or the rings on my fingers. Just wondering if others do it to.
I don’t know about others, but Loki doesn’t and neither did my first hedgehog.
Hi I'm so glad to have found your blog. I'm in NY. I have an eight week old hedgie, this is my first time owning one. I think the owner didn't handle her at all. Its hard to get her to not huff and puff and spike. Although I know I should give her time, which I have no problem with. I'm nervous that I won't be able to break this bad habit. My question is do you have any suggestions on how I can get her to use her wheel? She won't use it. She only sleeps and eats all day and night. Thanks!
Some won’t wheel, or it takes more time for them to find out how it works if they never had one. You can try putting her in the wheel to show her she can walk in it. Make sure the wheel isn’t too high for her, put it on the lowest setting first (if possible with your type of wheel) so she doesn’t have to climb into it. And tilt it back a bit, so she won’t fall out while running. It might just take some time, but I think she’ll figure it out!
