When you are allowed to pick up your African Pygmy Hedgehog, you naturally want to be well prepared! To prepare you well for the pick-up moment, we therefore have two checklists, which depend on the outside temperature. Is it below 25 degrees Celsuis outside? Then choose the summer checklist. Is it above 25 degrees outside? Then you choose the summer checklist.



Checklist

  • Summer
  • Winter
When you pick up your hedgehog at an outside temperature higher than 25 degrees Celsius, you must take the following items into account:
  • Travel basket (plastic, no cardboard box 1 )
  • A fleece blanket or sleeping bag
  • Your ID (may be requested if in doubt about your age) 2
  • The remaining amount to be paid 3


1 Cardboard becomes limp and dirty if the hedgehog wets in it during the journey. Not nice for the hedgehog and not for your nose afterwards. Moreover, you also need the transport box when a vet visit is necessary. We can therefore reasonably expect you to provide a suitable transport box in advance.
2 By law, we are not allowed to sell animals to people under the age of 16 without parental consent. However, because African Pygmy Hedgehogs are exotic animals and therefore require more responsibility, we do not sell under the age of 18 unless explicit parental consent is given. We can ask for your age and if in doubt also for your proof of identity. These data are not stored any further.
3 The amount that remains after the deposit has been paid. Read More

Care pack

You will always receive a starter package from us when you pick it up. The starter package contains a number of important papers, but also, for example, the food your hedgehog is used to, a toy with nest scent and a few other things. You can read more about this on our special page about the starter package.

Bonding manual

You may also wonder how you can best approach those first days, so that your hedgehog can get used to you and not get too stressed by the move. Your hedgehog will be very young when you move and will therefore not be used to that much. That is why we have an extensive manual with tips and tricks to help you get through the first days well.
