    Heehee. They are born without quils and "sprout" them within a half an hour after being born. Pinni's babies have already doubled in size :shocked:

    Here is a pic of one of Pinni's males. She has 2 girls and 2 boys. Candy has 6 babies, haven't gotten to see the girl boy ratio yet though..
    I had to wear gloves as not to get my scent on the babies.

    the adults are cute
    the babies - not so much
    lol
    usually its the other way around
    lol
    i guess its the wrinkly faces
    lol
    do you have to keep their environment a certain temp
    what do you use for bedding
    dry cat food or canned
    do they need a heat pad
    do they need humidity
    lol
    even tho we have goats, chickens, rabbits, cats, dogs i am looking for something for my youngest for him to keep in his room
    my oldest and one daughter have dogs and my other daughter has a cat and he has nothing that resides in the house and i really don't want any more cats or dogs in my house
    i was thinking fish but they are so untouchable
    o!
    do you always wear gloves because of the quills or can you handle them without
    congrats on all the babies!

    Yeah the babies are much cuter in person, he was trying to ball himself up so he looked really wrinkly :roll:

    They eat dry cat food.
    I use paper shreds from our shredder when they are in the house (allergies to shavings) but when I have them in their place outside I will use wood shavings.
    The friendly ones don't usually require gloves, and it is pretty easy to make them friendly.
    I keep their temp up at around 77 degrees but I breed them so it has to be warmer. But you want it atleast 72 I think. So you can use a heat pad to make them warmer. And the do not require humidity,

    Hope I answered all your questions!

    OH MY GOSH!!!! That is the cutest little think I have ever seen!!!!!!! I don't know if it's cute because of the nakedness and wrinkles or because of those little spikes. Holy cow, that is so cute! I want one! Is it just me or does anyone else think that is just so adorable?!?!
