But what if a co-worker offered to give you a hedgehog? This afternoon as I was leaving the building for my final bus run, I overheard a teacher talking about a hedgehog. She later explained that a parent had donated one to a teacher last year, and now the teacher is trying to get rid of it. It sounds interesting, but after reading about the beast (wikipedia), I’m wondering if (1) they are difficult to maintain, (2) cost much to feed, and (3) are too prickly to hold. I really don’t know. Anyone have any experience with them?
UPDATE: I found another site that answered some of my questions: Hedgehog Central
