Some quick facts on baby hedgehogs:

These little cuties aren’t born with spikes, that would probably hurt the momma hedgie just a wee bit, after all.

When born, their spikes are just below the skin. They don’t come through until about 2 weeks after birth.

Baby hedgehogs are also born blind! They open their eyes around the same time that their spikes start to poke out.

Most peculiar of all, these spiky squirts have baby teeth just like humans! They fall out after about 3 weeks.

They’re definitely adorable from start to finish, though.

    Oh goodness, LOL.

    (Why is that one BLUE???)

      Probably because some idiot had taken it away from mum and it was freezing. It’s never a good idea to separate babies from mum or even handle them this small. Mum will kill them if she feels threatened.

    “Baby hedgehogs are also born blind! They open their eyes around the same time that their spikes start to poke out.”

    No they don’t. The spines appear 2 hours after birth. Their eyes don’t open until 14 days later.

    “Most peculiar of all, these spiky squirts have baby teeth just like humans! They fall out after about 3 weeks.”

    Their teeth come through about the same time their eyes open, 2 weeks. They fall out around 5-6 weeks.

    Where did you get this info from? Any hedgehog hospital and rescue could tell you this.
