About Us
Gypsy, the Pet of the Day
Name: Gypsy
Age: One year and a half years old
Gender: Female
Kind: African Pygmy Hedgehog
Home: Michigan, USA
   Gypsy is a year-and-a-half old African Pygmy hedgehog. She earned her name by being the first to wobble her way out of her nestbox at two and a half weeks, before she could even see. She's extremely friendly and loves being held (and having her picture taken!), almost as much as she loves running on her wheel. Her cage is right next to my computer terminal and I talk to her while I work online.
