Welcome to Holly's Hogs
African Pygmy hedgehogs are becoming increasingly popular as pets all over the world, and if cared for correctly, these prickly pets can be very rewarding.
On average APH live for 4-6 years although some have been known to live longer. They are nocturnal, but many tame hedgehogs tolerate being woken up for a cuddle or play. However if you want to see your hedgie at his/her best, you need to stay up during the night to watch them run around and explore!
This website has been compiled from observing my own African Pygmy Hedgehog 'Mitzy' as well as speaking to breeders and owners plus my own research online.
