    Here my brother got an anbino one. It kept escaping and every time (a day or 2 later) my dog rocky would drop the spiky escape on her feet unharmed.

    No, her quills stay in her. They aren't barbed like a porcupine and don't come out when you get poked. Occasionally they fall out because they are just modified hairs and then they are replaced.

    "In Pennsylvania, USA, hedgehogs may not be imported into the state, but hedgehogs in the state as of 1992 and their descendants are at least theoretically allowed. In practice, enforcement of this law has been rumored to be arbitrary and ill-informed."

    There is still hope!!!! I did find a place in Maryland that had some, but breaking the law is something I'd just rather not do. A private breeder I must find!

    they are supposed to be about mid 80's. It's the middle of summer and she still sleeps on a heat matt and has a heat lamp. They are from Africa (mine's algerian) and if their area drops below 70 degrees they will try toi hibernate, and since they are tropical and aren't intended to do that they almost always die unless you get them immediate help.

    It sounds high maintenance but really the only thing to worry about it the heat. After you have a big cage and a heat matt and lamp they are as low maintenance as a hamster. They eat cat food

    She is just too cute. I like her name. Is she named after Pippi Longstocking?
