Blueberry, the Pet of the Day
Name: Blueberry
Age: Three months old
Gender: Male
Kind: African Pygmy Hedgehog
Home: Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA
   I would like to nominate my pet hedgehog Blueberry! My pet is adorable because he is always hiding in his blue foam tube, but he just can't seem to fit :).

    He's my first hedgehog, I've had him for a little over a week and got him from Hamor Hollow hedgehogs. He is really playful and likes to run around in circles in his play pen but only when the lights are off and he thinks I'm not watching. He really loves blueberries and he annointed himself with it when I first gave him one. He is very affectionate and usually lays in my lap with all his legs turned out and lets me pet his face. He doesn't really do any tricks, he is still getting used to me anyway, but I can get him to go wherever I want by just holding his blue tube in front of his face because he'll follow it.

    I had been in contact with Hamor Hollow for a week or so and I went down to pick from about five baby hedgehogs. When I picked him up he instantly started climbing all over me and exploring and then curled up happily in my hands while all of the other hedgehogs just stayed puffed up and hissed at me. So I chose him! Don't mind the pink spot on his quills. The breeder used some paint to identify the baby hedgies so they could tell me who the parents were and when the baby was born (Blueberry was born 6/18). It will go away pretty soon.
