            He is cute, but what do you do with it? Brush your hair. I need fluff and fur, no feathers, no fins, no scales. Spines???? Cute but can he cuddle?

              Also, check you local and state laws. In some areas they are considered exotics and need special permitting to own. They are cute!

                A coworker's daughter wanted one and I had to break it to her that hedgies are illegal in CA with some exceptions.
                Personally, I just don't see the appeal. They are cute, but I would never want to own one as a pet.

                  He's cute, but I'm not too fond of anything that dosen't Bark or Meow. The pet store where I work is remoldeling,, yea!!!!,, we are getting a new grooming area with our own storefront,,,but in the meantime, they have moved all the creepy crawlers right outside the door of our current grooming area. I've already told them any snake that gets out and into grooming will be DOA,,, hehehe

                    My old co worker brought her babies to work. They are even cuter in person. I remeber them rolling into little balls if you touched them.

                      I've worked with an exotics vet. What I've discovered while working with him was this: Cute, exotic pets are expensive to take care of and very hard to keep alive. Often we don't know what they need to stay healthy until they have been kept in captivity for quite some time. In general hedgehogs often die of species specific diseases, that there is no cure for. I'd hold off on getting an exotic pet unless you are willing to spend lots of cash for a good vet and lots of time learning how to best keep it so it has a long happy life.

                      I am always concerned when an esentially wild animal is domesticated because it's cute.

                          I do not think he is cute.
