||Eleven months old|
||African Pygmy Hedgehog|
is our precious girl, Nova. Nova was a little baby girl when we
first took her in our hands. She was a little frightened, and skittish.
After she got used to our smell, she began to lick our hands and got
calmer. She's been with us for eight months, And she gave birth to four cute
baby hedgehogs. She's very precious because she's a perfect, caring
mother, and has raised her babies to be as sweet and gentle as she is.
Her lovely fair quills makes her a beauty queen =) She has a wonderful
time out exploring the grass the day I took this photo, you could tell
she was really enjoying herself with all the different smells, sights
and textures. Look out, Dora - Nova the Explorer is on the job! She is
one of the reasons we now have six hedgehogs, and started their own
Facebook page - it is a Hedgehog World!
