African Pygmy Hedgehogs are exotic animals that have become increasingly popular in recent years. But they remain exotic animals that you should not just take into your home, they require a lot of reading and preparation. Therefore, please read our informative pages about their accommodation, care, nutrition and more. At our hedgery you will receive a survey when you register for the waiting list to determine how much knowledge you have about these animals. We do this to find out how much guidance you may need in this preparation. It is different from what you are used to with many other hedgeries, but in the end this also ensures that you start with more knowledge on these animals, you know somewhat how to react to situations when they arise and it therefore also improves animal welfare. for your new pet.

For example, we treat housing, nutrition, care and health, but we also teach you about the different types of behavior and how you can best handle your hedgehog and fix it if necessary.Read the caresheet.
