There are about 17 different types of Hedgehogs. They come from Europe, Africa and Asia. They have also been introduced into New Zealand. The name came from these mammals working through Hedges for food and making noises like a hog. They root for insects, worms and small frogs, mice and snakes. Hedgehog spines do not come out and are used to protect them from predators. They roll themselves up into balls, this is also how they sleep. In cold areas they will hibernate. They are nocturnal animals so they sleep in the daytime. Hedgehogs only get together to mate. They have litters in sizes from 1 to 11. Mothers have to be very diligent because even male Hedgehogs will eat the young. For Pets it appears that the African Hedgehog is considered the best. In the USA many states do not allow the keeping of Hedgehogs as pets because they are non native animals and may become pests and endanger our wildlife.
