The African dwarf hedgehog, or domestic hedgehog, is a hybrid of the white-bellied hedgehog (atelerix albiventria) and the Moorish hedgehog (atelerix algerius).
Its spines are not totally sharp, so that when touched they do not hurt and it feels more like a hard bush than a bunch of needles.
They measure from 10 to 20 centimeters long when reaching maturity, and weigh from 350 to 500 grams; to give you an idea in case you haven’t had one, it’s about the size of an adult guinea pig.
Hedgehogs don’t have scent glands like ferrets, gliders, and other animals, so as long as your cage is kept in reasonable grooming conditions, there will be no unpleasant odors.
In captivity, hedgehogs live an average of 5 to 6 years.
