• Who We Are

    Hedgehogworld.com was created in 2004 by a group of hedgehog owners and breeders who had more than 40 years of combined experience with hedgehogs. This group had been friends and collaborators for a few years, supporting and encouraging each other through thick and thin with life, hedgehogs, and the hedgehog community. Each individual had worked hard to promote hedgehog information through their own websites, so they decided to put all of their hard work together in one place. Thus, hedgehogworld.com was born.

    Our goal for the site has always been to create a home where we could provide accurate and current information from a variety of viewpoints. We wanted to have a safe and friendly place to get to know other hedgehog fans from around the world, and share ideas, stories, and problems.

    Since Hedgehog World's creation, we have worked towards that goal by organizing shows, public appearances at pet expos and other community events, hosting gatherings, and continuing to add to our information bank. We hope that our work is never finished, and we will be able to grow and develop for many years to come.
