African Pygmy Hedgehog babies born today....PICS.

Hi all

We got a 4 little surprises when we looked upon our female hedge hog on May 14th.. the babies are hard to see as the mother was doing her best to keep her babies safe and outta sight from us.

If you look in the top left hand corner of her house you can see the little pink pin cusion..LOL


Also in this one you can see the baby pin cusion by her head..


Was able to snap a few quick shots of the little babies soo tiny like new born rat pinkies.


Here is a pic to show the size.


They are so tiny and you can't believe the urge to just pick them up and hold them..! LOL

Cheers
Scotty & Les

aww, so cute. I used to breed hedgies too. I stoped when my bella (first and last female) passed away. She was my angel! But I could never handle the babies before 2 weeks of age or the mother would kill them, what is your secret?!
Eventually I want to get another hedgie but I know I wont find any like my belly again. She NEVER bit, never popped, and never curled, she loved to be out and get attention, out of my 4 hedgies she was the only one. Well, take care and good luck with the little pin cushions.
