    here she is as 6 weeks old. she's an african pygmy hedgehog. she's triple that size now. oh and my friend halie is holding her while i take the pics (just in case someone thought i wore blue nailpolish )
















    she only rolls into a ball when i scare her, then she smels my hand and lays down her quills. she loves kisses on her tummy and for me to rub her chin. she hates baths and being woken up!

    Are you talking about the hedgehog or your friend.

    And she is cute. At least her hands are.

    Make sure to play with her a lot, it's important to make a bond with young hedgehogs because as adults they are very capable of keeping you at arm's length. You want to be on her good side. I had a male once, and he took a lot of work. I was pretty good with him but in his old age he got cranky and solitary, which made him much harder to care for. Get your girl accustomed to baths, too, because they love to get messy and smelly, and a stinky little pincushion isn't very fun to play with. If you can get her a shallow, sloped dish where she can approach the water voluntarily it might be a good start - that's how I got my guy to take baths.
    Best luck and have fun,
