I have been researching information about hedgehogs for quite a few months now and am now ready to purchase my first hedgie. However, I have a problem. I would prefer to buy from a breeder but the closest breeder lives about 4 hours away and doesnt reply back to my emails. There is however a local pet store that sells hedgies but they pair the males and females together, they dont have a wheel in the tank for excersise, and when I asked for a health record they said they didnt have any(they said they get their hedgies from local breeders). The only good thing about their hedgies were they seemed very playful and they werent scared when I held them. Now I know all of these are negatives to buying a hedgie, and I just don't know what to do. Should I take a risk and buy one from the pet store? Or wait and try to find a breeder? Please help! Thanks in advance!
