Here at the rescue we have over 10 years of experience of APH ownership. So we know what to feed to a hog and what not to. We know about the housing set up, knowing what size and which type of enclosure is very important to the wellbeing of your pet. African Pygmy hedgehogs also require to be kept at a certain temperature which lots of people do not realise. African Pygmy Hedgehogs are bred from the Algerian hedgehog and the four-toed hedgehog which is sometimes called the white bellied hedgehog. These beautiful animals are essentially wild animals that have been ‘domesticated’, but they still retain much of their wild instincts, like a fear of predators (humans). When frightened they form a ball of spikey quills, huff, pop and jump which to the novice owner is very painful, but it is surmountable with repeated handling. We are here to inform and help in every aspect of hedgehog ownership.
