Pixie is a young, 6 month old hedgehog. She is a lively little critter that is like most hedgehogs. She likes her mealworms, black flies, and super worms. She came from a home that bought on impulse and didn't realize the responsibilities that come with owning a hedgehog. She came to us with little understanding of being handled by people and would snap, crackle and pop with sounds to try and avoid interactions. She was placed in an experienced handler to help socialize her, stimulate her mind, and help bring her to a more healthy state of wellbeing.
Pixie is looking for a family that has experience with the species, know how to properly care for her to have optimal health, and thrive. She is a nocturnal species and does make noises as she roots around her enclosure looking for insects and to play with toys.
If you are interested in her please be prepared to answer questions about what type of enclosure you have for her, what experience you have, and whether you have an exotics veterinarian or know where your nearest one is, if she were needing veterinary care.
Please come back again to see what new animals have come in looking for new homes
