Hedgehogs by Vickie

LIVESTOCK

WE ARE A USDA LICENSED BREEDER #33-A-0441
AND HAVE BEEN BREEDING HEDGEHOGS
SINCE
1994

OUR QUALITY BABY HEDGIES ARE RAISED IN
OUR HOME WITH TENDER LOVING CARE!

WE TAKE PRIDE IN THE FACT THAT OUR GENTLE BABIES MAKE THE BEST PETS!

WE BREED AFRICAN PYGMY HEDGEHOGS
IN SEVERAL COLORS/PATTERNS.
  • SALT & PEPPER:   THE COMMON WILD AGOUTI COLOR.
    (SOME CALL THIS COLOR STANDARD)
  • CINNAMON:   A LIGHTER, CREAMIER VERSION OF SALT & PEPPER.
  • ALBINO:   OUR WHITE HEDGEHOGS ARE ACTUALLY ALBINO.
  • SNOWFLAKE:   SNOWFLAKE IS ACTUALLY A PATTERN.  THE ANIMAL CAN
    HAVE A BASE COLOR OF ANY OF THE COLORS THAT WE BREED IN.  MIXED
    THROUGHOUT THE BANDED QUILLS WILL BE SOLID WHITE QUILLS.  THIS GIVES
    THE HEDGIE A "FROSTED" APPEARANCE.  SNOWFLAKES CAN HAVE UP TO
    90% WHITE QUILLS.
  • CHAMPAGNE:  A LIGHT ANIMAL WITH MINIMAL QUILL BANDING AND LIVER
    COLORED MUZZLE.
  • CINNICOT:   A RUSTY VERSION OF THE CINNAMON.
  • OAK BROWN:  A PRETTY BROWN ANIMAL THAT IS LIGHTER THAN A CINNAMON,
    BUT DARKER THAN A CHAMPAGNE.  THESE GUYS RETAIN THE FACIAL MASK
    FEATURES.
  • APRICOT:   A LIGHT COLORED ANIMAL WITH ORANGE & BEIGE QUILLS.
  • DARK EYED WHITE:  THESE ANIMALS HAVE GLEEMING WHITE QUILLS...BUT
    HAVE DARK EYES, EARS AND NOSES! THEY ARE THE ANSWER FOR FOLKS WHO
    DESIRE A WHITE HEDGEHOG, BUT DON'T CARE FOR
    THE PINK EYES AND SKIN OF ALBINOS.
  • PINTO:   ACTUALLY THIS IS A PATTERN, NOT A COLOR. WHITE ON COLORED QUILLS. PINTOS CAN RANGE FROM LITE MARKINGS TO THE FLASHY TOBIANO PINTO, WHICH
    IS OUR FABULOUS HIGH WHITE STRAIN.  WE ARE WELL KNOWN FOR OUR PINTO HEDGEHOGS
    AND BREED THIS PATTERN IN MOST OF OUR BACKGROUND COLORS!
  • PLATINUM:  THESE RARE HEDGEHOGS ARE A TYPE OF DARK EYED WHITE. 
    THEY HAVE 99% SOLID WHITE QUILLS (NO BANDED QUILLS) AND THEY
    HAVE VERY DARK SKIN AND FACIAL FEATURES. VERY STUNNING!
CHECK OUT OUR "COLORS PAGE" TO SEE PICTURES OF THESE
GORGEOUS HEDGEHOG
COLORS!
  • WE WEAN OUR BABY HEDGIES AT 7-8
    WEEKS OF AGE DEPENDING ON THE
    SIZE OF THE LITTER.

Hedgehog Heaters
Rheostat Hedgehog Heater
Hedgehogs are dry, arid, desert creatures that like it warm in their
environment.  We get a little nervous if our hedgie's habitat gets much
cooler than 70 degrees. Having a supplemental heat source in the winter
months is recommended in colder locations. Searching for an
economical and easy way to maintain a "warm spot" in our cages
led us to discover two great products commonly used by reptile keepers:
THE ZOO MED UNDER TANK HEATER
AND THE
ZOO MED REPTITEMP RHEOSTAT

The Under Tank Heater (UTH) sticks to the bottom of the cage,
and is designed to maintain a warm surface temperature in one corner
of the cage. 

(We recommend placing this heater in the far corner of the cage,
away from the Whisper Wheel).

Since the UTH is designed to keep the cages of cold blooded reptiles
warm, if used alone, it tends to be a tad too warm for most hedgies.
Hedgehog Heater
That is where the Reptitemp Rheostat comes in. The Reptitemp is a manual
control rheostat. Just plug the UTH into it.  The Reptitemp Rheostat
allows you to turn a dial to adjust the temperature of the UTH!  Turn it up
in the winter and down in the summer, depending on your inside house temperatures.
We sell both the ZOO MED UNDER TANK HEATER
and the ZOO MED REPTITEMP RHEOSTAT
as a package deal for
ONLY $50.00 + $6.00 shipping/handling

(NOTE: We recommend that you: 1. Do not guess at the temperature of your hedgehog's cage, and
always use a thermometer.  
We include a small thermometer with the Heater/Rheostat Combo. 
2. We include a couple narrow boards in order to elevate your hedgehog cage above the
table top. This will create an airflow chamber around the UTH
.
