Hedgehog Croquet by slightlyoff-beat Hedgehog Croquet by slightlyoff-beat
An inquisitive little hedgehog. My Coconut =)

----------
edit 9/10/07: Coconut became ill and was put to sleep a few days ago. She was such a loving little hoglet, and an excellent model. Me and her sister Mace miss her so much. RIP Coconut. :heart: :floating:

This is my most popular work on dA and has been for a while, so I want to thank all you guys =)

On top of that, I have such personal fondness for this photo because it celebrates Coco's life. It's nearly been a year since she was put to sleep and now it's easier to look at this picture and be happy.

Thank you again, everyone who commented, faved, or even just looked. =)

I have been wanting a hedgehog lately, and I think my parents are interested. But I need to know how much they are, and who I can trust for a breeder. Or should I say, If I can trust a local breeder or a Pet Store, or even adopt.

She was a pygmy hedgehog, light in color but not albino. That's about as specific as I can be, heh.

Other than the fact that hedgies are freaking adorable (which they are), this is a really great pic. Even more so considering that, at least in my experience, they don't tend to stay still for long.

Also, extremely belated sympathies. Don't know what I'll do when my grumpy old man goes.

Thank you. I completely feel you on hedgies not staying still. This picture is actually an action shot hahaha running at my lens. Hundreds of pictures + an hour or two = 1 good shot = totally worth it.

can you keep hedgehogs as pets? are they social? =)

Thanks! =] Depending on where you live, having a hedgie as a pet can be legal. It's legal here in NY where I live. They are social if you get a young one and raise them to be social, play with them a lot and all that. My Coconut was so friendly and sweet =D

They are wonderful pets. They're fairly low maintenance, and friendly, if you get a young one and play with him or her often.

I'm sorry you lost her (I know it's been awhile) she was adorable! Do you currently have one? I wish I could, they're illegal in my state :(

I currently have one, Coconut's sister Mace, but alas she is at home with my mom and I am in college where we are only allowed to have fish. Plus it's colder at my college than home, not a great environment for a hedgie.
