Advert Description

Lesser hedgehog tenrecs for sale £150 each (no offers please).
This is my first litter of four & I plan to reluctantly sell two babies & keep back two.
Buyer chooses their preferred specimen/s.
Sexing is impossible at this age without a vet taking blood samples.
I used to breed African Pygmy hedgehogs & now I infinitely prefer tenrecs - they are virtually smell free in comparison with more interesting personalities.
Easy to keep but they must be in a heated enclosure (they come from Madagascar).
Mine eat predominantly regular mealworms, morio (giant) mealworms & locusts up to adult size (all livefood is dusted with nutrobal).
I can give more specific advice if you need it. My parent tenrecs & set-ups can be seen (I have two adult unrelated pairs).
Photos show a baby when it first ventured out of the nest box a few weeks ago - the last photo is of the mum with four weaned juveniles as they look now.
I am based in Haslemere, Surrey (just along from Guildford on the A3).
