so i work at a local petstore and someone brought in a little hedgehog!so me being all about crazy animal oddities took it home!the previous owners said she was about 5 months but shes awfully big to be 5 months(but yet ive never owned one so i wouldnt know)they say she doesnt bite and so far has not.but when i pick her up all she does is curl up and hiss.if i blow on her face she pokes her little head out and tries to roll over and as soon as she does shes curled right back up.i know i need to be patiant but is there anything i could do to help her acclimate?if i put her on the floor she uncurls and just stands there.
thanks...
