Is a Hedgehog the Right Pet For You?
 Information under the "Hedgehog Care" Link include many different aspects of how to care and handle a hedgehog.  Please note, the information listed is what we at Northern Plains Hedgehogs have found to work the best.  There is an abundance of information out there on how to care for a hedgehog and what is best for them, along with many, many opinions.  Please do your research to find what works best for you and your pet.

Below is a link to another page on our website that has different website links regarding hedgehog care.  One of them is a book that can be downloaded for free.  It was created by another hedgehog breeder and it the most recent publication that has been put out for domestic hedgehogs.   While it is a few years old now and we do not agree with everything in this book, and some things have changed since it was put out, it can be an invaluable tool for someone looking to get a hedgehog as a pet, which is why we recommend it.  If you are unsure on something, please ASK!  :)
