Choosing Your Hedgehog

Both males and females make equally great pets. There is no noticeable difference in temperament between male and females. Males do not produce any extra odors and females do not have a heat cycle. You should choose a pet based on individual temperaments rather than gender.

You should be prepared to house your hedgehog in his/her own cage. Hedgehogs are solitary and territorial and usually require a cage of their own.

When babies are four weeks old, I will post photos to this page and contact my paid waiting list. Babies can leave here at seven weeks of age.

50% of ALL profits are donated to Piggins and Banks Pig & Animal Sanctuary.

Interested in adopting an older hedgehog?

Riddle’s Hedgehogs regularly adopts out rescues. Adoption fees are based on the age of the hedgehog and all hedgehogs are adopted out with a complete cage set up. Adoption fees range between $90-$150. If you are interested, please submit a questionnaire and schedule a “hedgehog visit” to meet a few of the adults available:


Current Breedings

The hedgehogs below have been bred or a breeding has been planned. This does not guarantee that a litter will be born.  Winter breedings are much less predictable. I will post photos of the babies to this page once the babies are 4 weeks old. :)
