    Awwwww he's so cute! What do they feel like? They look spiky, but I've heard that they aren't. I've never even seen one in real life... no one bothers to keep hedgehogs in zoos.

    Only his back has quills, his belly is all fur and if you're holding him right that's (mostly) all you should be feeling. Unless he's grumpy... then he rolls and then they hurt. As long as he's not scared or agitated, his quills lie flat and you can pet him without getting poked. They actually feel kind of like a really light plastic, super smooth and extremely sharp on the end. I wouldn't say he's as soft and fluffy as a hamster, but he has his moments.

    Bath-time and snuggling into the cozy sack after bath-time.

    Dammit, that whole thing you just said was adorable.
    I wish my life consisted of baths and cozy time, haha.

    I was really looking at getting one when I was debating my most recent pet (hedgehog, sugar glider, chin). They're just on the expensive side for set-up. But maybe one day!
    Yeah, Rocky can be quite a bit to take care of, but chinchillas (especially Rocky, I would like to think) are so intelligent and magical that it makes the whole thing worth it. He really reminds me of a furry little human, sometimes.

    I love chinnies, never been able to be around one though. But they're adorable and fluffy!

    I'd love to see a hedgehog in person someday. I like how they kind of trussell about in a very business like fashion. They look like little woodland animals from a fairy tale :3
    I have a video of Rocky playing in the hallway, maybe I'll upload it later. I also have to clean his cage tonight. But first, your hedgehog reminded me how much I need a nap, haha.

    Oooh VIDEOS!! If you lived closer, or vice versa, we could arrange a play-date! haha My little Janček is a pro at waddling about... ^^

    Can chinnies be trained? I tried to get Jancek litter-trained once but he just proceeded to tear up the puppy pads in the pan and use it as bedding, so I gave up after a month. Some hedgies can be trained, mine is just... stubborn. He generally uses his wheel as a litter box now, so it kind of worked out.

    Re: Pet Pix

    More pet pics .... not the best shot of my aquarium, but close. Fish can be pets too

    I will probably take better pics once I figure out the new camera.





    12 rummynose
    15 neon tetra
    2 bolivian rams
    2 ivory mystery snail
    several red dwarf shrimp
    1 blonde blue eyed fantail bristlenose
    1 amazingly hardy pygmy cory (a full school is on the way for him)


    needle leaf java fern
    narrow leaf java fern
    windelov java fern
    anubias barteri
    bolbitis
    christmas/java moss


    The larger fish (the bolivians) and the rummynose cannot be seen as they are rather peeved at THE FOOD SPIRIT for bringing some strange contraption near the tank they had never seen before, getting all close and flashing bright lights before said FOOD SPIRIT could figure out how to turn the flash off ...

    Fish are TOTALLY pets too!

    I miss having fish. It's one of the first things we'll do when we get our own place. I didn't want to start a tank from scratch here as we're renting and the plan was that we wouldn't rent forever. We've been here four years now and hope it's our last. I just don't want to get a tank established then have to move it and lose half the fish in the move.
