spines and their bellies are soft and furry. When threatened or scared they roll into a tight ball. When relaxed their spines lay almost flat. They make a good beginner exotic pet as they are easy to care for and just plain fun.
Despite their impressive display of little spines they are easily tamed, and when they feel secure, their little quills feel like hairbrushes. Hedgehogs love to explore and run around. They also love critter balls and it’s a great way to exercise them.
