    So You Bought a Hedgehog

    I bought this book for my son's 22nd birthday when he and his girlfriend bought a pet pygmie hedgehog. All of us had many questions on how to take care of a hedgehog. For example, if you want to handle this spikey pet, you need to learn how. Also, the pet had babies to our surprise, so we needed the book as a reference for that as well. Food, toys, cage, bathing, all these questions and more were addressed in this book. It was a great reference book for new owners of an unusual pet.
