Hedgehogs are adorable little creatures and I understand people's curiosity about them, wanting to visit to "see or hold a hedgehog", However,  I am not a petting zoo and do not have licensing or insurance required for one.

I can, however, offer for you to attend an educational Hedgehog 101 Session! If you are unsure whether a Hedgehog is the correct pet for you or the hedgehog is to be the pet of a child under the age of 13, I encourage you to attend a session! 

Hedgehogs are not for everyone!  The most important part for me as a breeder is to find my babies their "forever" homes.   Hedgehogs do not transplant well from owner to owner,  it can be traumatizing to them.  It is crucial it be the right home the first time!  

Hedgehogs are exotic animals and do have specific needs that must be met in order to maintain their lovable little social personalities.  

In the Hedgehog 101 Session you will learn all aspects of basic care and keeping for an African Pygmy Hedgehog. You will also have the opportunity to intereact with a few of the Morning Star Hedgehog Herd.  There is also a question/answer section so any and all your questions can be answered. 

Each Session lasts approximately one hour.  

Fee:  $20 payable at time of registration (via Chase quick pay or PayPal $21) If you decide you would like to reserve one of my babies the fee paid for the session will become your deposit :) 

If you are not certain a Hedgehog is the right addition for your family I welcome you to come to one of my Hedgehog 101 Sessions.
