I found a few books that looked like promising reads when I did a quick search on Barnes and Noble's site:
Guide to Owning an African Pygmy Hedgehog : Housing, Feeding, Breeding, Exhibition, Health Care
by Dennis Kelsey-Wood,
The Guide to Owning a Hedgehog
by Audrey Pavia, Nikki Moustaki
Keeping African Pygmy Hedgehogs As a New Pet
by Dennis Kelsey-Wood, Ralph Lermayer
by Matthew M. Vriends Ph.D.
Hedgehog: An Owner's Guide to a Happy Healthy Pet
by Dawn Wrobel, Susan A. Brown DVM
a few of the books on Barnes and nobles sites had mixed reviews saying some of the books did not give such great advise on how to keep the animals but I would like to get serveral opinions on the matter before I commit to getting one. I have already been lucky enough to meet a breeder in the area, more so in the st.louis area..but still finding exotic breeder actually in the state is hard enough. and I have been wanting to try and find books on the subject to read up on for a while now, so I can have knowledge as to how to keep a hedgie well.
Besides I love the fact Barnes and Nobles site has a feature were you can buy the books used. I would feel a lil better about reading a book that did not have accurate info but some good if I was only paying $1.99 or two bucks for it as opposed to 7 or 14. I wish my library had books on hedgehogs, I have checked out pet books many times from my local library and found it to be most helpful on information and on saving me from spending my own money to get books. But some times with certain topics you just don't luck out so easily. Hopefully I can educate myself well, and find out all the info I need to before going out and getting my new hedgie though.
