If you can pick him up, he's yours.

A few years back, I was interested in getting a hedgie... an albino one, from a pet shop in town. Full grown male, for $45. He was beautiful, but he had such the attitude.

The guy at the shop says to me, "If you can pick him up, you can have him free with supplies."

needless to say, I never got the little thing off the ground.

he would puff up every time I'd get anywhere near him.

I tried to pick him up the way the guy showed me ...every time "Pfft" is the sound the little guy would make....

so ... I never got the little guy.... but realized I could probably never deal with one anyway.

Hedgies are masters at bluffing their way out of being picked up. It's usually thieir first line of defense. I have one who still hisses and pops everytime you pick her up. She's my most challenging. I got her when she was older. THe others might hiss and ball up for a few minutes, but usually unroll. One of mine will never ball up. He's just too nosey. LOL
