Hedgehogs do make good pets.

A pet hedgehog requires a lot of care but the hedgehog is a very friendly, active, fun and quiet pet to have around.

Hedgehogs are also great companion pets but the hedgehog is a nocturnal animal which means that you will need to feed and care for the hedgehog in the evening hours.

Hedgehogs have a spines that are smooth on the hedgehogs coat and those smooth spines on the hedgehogs coat are similar to the bristles on a brush.

Hedgehogs have a pretty short lifespan though with an average lifespan of the hedgehog being between 2 to 5 years so you won't have your pet hedgehog very long before it dies of natural causes.

Hedgehogs are mammals of the subfamily Erinaceinae, in the eulipotyphlan family Erinaceidae.

There are seventeen species of hedgehogs in five genera found through parts of Europe, Asia, and Africa, and in New Zealand by introduction.

Hedgehogs are wonderful pets for most people and they are pretty easy to take care of although the hedgehog does require a lot of care but the care for the hedgehog is pretty easy.
