Q: The last couple of weeks or so, he pretty much stays in a ball when she gets him out of the cage or the bag, and he is also making a loud and fast breathing noise, sorta like panting noise. He is still eating fine, just curious if you have any ideas or suggestions
A: The breathing and the panting are normal hedgehog noises. When they stay in a ball like that it could be the temperature/weather, if it is too cool in the house. Make sure they have a heating pad (the ones that do not turn off but stay on all the time) keep it on low or medium under the cage with a blanket on top. Also what you could do as a last resort is put them in a little sink of warm water, this will help them calm down and will make him easier to handle.
