Ryan Interview (Spyke)

How long have you had Spyke?

I have had Spyke for at least 1 1/2 yrs.


What made you decide you wanted a hedgehog as a pet?

My dad wanted one as a child, so we got one for him for Father’s Day. But we loved him, so we bought another one (Pyper, a female).


How would you describe Spyke’s personality?

He’s arrogant, shy, funny, and weird.

What’s your favorite part about being a hedgehog owner?

I love everything about it!


Any tips for future hedgehog owners?

Hedgehogs love to eat a lot of crickets and mealworms. They need a wheel for exercise and somewhere to sleep like a house.

Also, bathing is very important, which I would do in a plastic container with warm water. You could get a toothbrush and baby shampoo and brush the quills until they’re clean.


Thank you, Abby, for sharing your hedgehogs with us! If you’re a hedgehog owner and want to get your hedgehog in the spotlight, we’d love to hear from you at { }.
