Azami, the Pet of the Day
Name: Azami
Age: Three months old
Gender: Female
Kind: African Pygmy Hedgehog
Home: Hamilton, Ontario, Canada
   Azami is my little female hedgehog, she is an Algerian Chocolate Chip Snowflake African Pygmy Hedgehog. How's that for a mouthful of a name for a little thing like her? But the name describes her pretty coloring, with bands of brown on many of her ivory-colored quills.

    Azami is a fairly new addition to our family. She is a sweet girl but has her days when she can be a handful. She is nuts about running on her wheel, so she is a very fit gal. Some of her favorite treats include apples and mealworms.

    Her favorite activities include sleeping & playing with her big red ball. Occasionally she likes to snuggle but she is very curious and would rather explore her surroundings than anything. When she is tired out from all her busy explorations, she'll sometimes want a good snuggle! On the odd occasion when she doesn't want to be bothered she will roll up in a ball and stay that way until we leave her alone! In the wild, that's a defense mechanism, but with her, it's just a clear signal of her mood. We love her very much!
