Advert Description

African Pygmy hedgehogs

Various colours available, I have mostly males ready to go now but I do have the odd female

They are Very tame and have been handled from a week old and love coming out to play - they are very inquisitive and develop their own personalities

I’ve been keeping and breeding these for the best part of 20 years + , I can supply unrelated pairs if required

They are kept in vivariums, sawdust as a substrate with a hide box and a large degu sized wheel

They are fed on James welbeloved cat food - turkey flavour ,this is a high quality food they thrive on
I use mealworms and wax worms as a treat

They are drinking from water bottles ( they have no issues with this and it ensures a constant supply of clean drinking water )

I do not use any form of heating with them - I do not have
heat lamps / lights or mats - as long as your house is warm enough for you they are fine ( mine have been breeding with no heat in their room for a couple of decades )

Preloved Safety Advice:

  • Important: Before responding to any pet ad, be sure to read our Pet Buying Checklist and download your copy for free.
  • Photos: Photos on ads can be misleading. Sellers may temporarily group animals in confined spaces, purely to get a photo. These images don't represent an animal's natural habitat. Always visit the pet in their current home so you can see their housing for yourself.
  • Research: Always learn everything you can about a species before contacting a seller. This will give you a better idea of what to expect when you go to visit a seller, what questions to ask, and what else you might need to buy.
  • Payments: Always use a safe payment method that offers you some protection, such as PayPal or Credit Card.
  • Reporting Concerns: If you've seen an ad on Preloved the breaches our welfare listing guidelines, you can click on 'Report Advert' just below the ad and we'll investigate your concerns.
