Hedgehogs are surprisingly dangerous pets, infection-wise. They carry salmonella, bubonic plague, herpes and something called fish tank disease, as well as ringworm.
A friend used to work for an animal rescue place. I'll never forget how disgusted she was when people would bring in hedgehogs. She'd always wonder aloud why on earth were these ever domesticated.They live in a box or empty aquarium, which doesn't sound like a nice life for a living being, does it? Find another pet. They curl up into a prickly ball when you pick them up. They belong in the wild. Find aother pet, please.
They were so adorable as the cheerleaders in this years Puppy Bowl.
