THP

Hedgehog research and education platform

Average age

As the species is being held as pets since the early 90’s, the lifespan in captivity has gone up. But there’s never really done any research so far, so we’d like to set up a project in which we can give a small indication of how the average lifespan developed over the years. In this database, we’ll track the age, gender and country of the anima, but we also well provide a pop-up with some more information on the specific hedgehog if applicable.

Click the ‘See info’ button to see more information on the specific litter. It will open in a pop-up. If you have a pop-up blocker or ad blocker this may cause issues opening the information pop-up.
