Hedgehogs are fun little animals that can make excellent beginner pets for children. When looking at a Hedgehog, you may notice that its fur looks pointy. That's because it is. The fur is actually made up of prickly quills, sort of like the quills on a Porcupine. Underneath the Hedgehog is soft and furry though, so there's a big difference between the top of the animal and the bottom. These are relatively easy to care for pets, hence the suggestion that they may be appropriate for kids. As these animals are handled and cared for, they'll become more comfortable and their quills will relax and lay flat. They'll actually feel sort of like the bristles on a hair brush. If you do decide to buy a Hedgehog as a pet, you'll find that yours is curious, loves to run around, loves to get exercise, and loves to explore.
Pet Hedgehogs can live up to five years. They're not very aggressive and they don't really seek attention. These aren't the types of pets that you'd cuddle or get close to on a regular basis. In general, because of their laid back nature, they interact easily with those they know and strangers alike. Their temperament isn't one of neediness. They'll like to interact with you whether you'd spent time away from them or stayed with them 24 hours a day. It doesn't really matter to them. When it comes to buying supplies and food for these animals, all of this is readily available at your pet store or online. It's not difficult to purchase what you need for your Hedgehog.
