    Why a hedgehog?

    Just like all animals, it depends on how young and how they were treated before you get them will mainly determine if they are willing to bond. And when they do, oh are hegies adorable 😍. Mine had no issues with being held, would sleep in my lap, followed me around and nibble at my toes to get...

    I don't see why they wouldn't. But I'm weird, I also taught my hamster Zipper to stay on my shoulder. I guess it all depends on how the parents interact with their Chin.

    No oddly enough. Did train to do shoulder, so head was natural progression. He likes to jump on, well, everything. So why should it be off limits to him? Chinchilla logic!

    Help! It’s been two months and I still can’t touch my chinchilla.

    This is all helpful to know. I got my 1st chin just under 2 months ago. He'll jump all over me, sit on my head, runs up to my feet, but God forbid I try to pet or pick him up! I basically just started sitting on the floor while he's running around and didn't move to start building trust. But to...

    First time Chin mom here. Got my little boy just over a month ago. He was born 5/19/22 and is a little bundle of joy.
