These are estimated prices for our hedgehogs and can go up depending on unique colors or markings. The average price for a baby is around $250-350. This guide should give you an idea of what to expect for certain colorations.
How do we determine the price?
We take three things into consideration:
1. Personality - You may see one hedgehog priced high and another that looks similar priced lower. This is likely due to the hedgehogs personality. Shyer hedgehogs are priced lower than friendlier hedgehogs.
2. Coloration - Dark colors usually go for more than lighter colors.
3. Facial Markings - Full masks, split face and other unquine markings are priced higher.
Why are your hedgehogs priced higher than someone selling on a local market page?
We track lineage/pedigree on our hedgehogs, meaning we make sure our hedgehogs are not inbred, riddled with genetic diseases, and are from quality breeders that care about their animals. A breeder selling on Craigslist or a local market page that is not pedigree is not taking any steps to ensure that your hedgehog is the healthiest it can be genetically. They can provide you with no actual evidence that they are doing everything to prevent Wobbly Hedgehog Syndrome or other genetic issues. We also socialize our hedgehogs every day, provide complete transparency, and communicate with our customers around the clock and throughout their hedgehog's lifetime and beyond. We don't disappear after you adopt a hedgehog from us. We have a guarantee that if in the event you can't keep your hedgehog due to financial or personal homelife reasons, we will ALWAYS take our babies back, no matter what. We assume that responsibility and will provide your hedgehog with the medical care it needs if you aren't able to. When you adopt a hedgehog from us, you are adopting a hedgehog that has been well socialized, has the best possible chance of being free of WHS, lifetime support and communication with an experience hedgehog breeder/owner, and a safe spot for your hedgehog if you ever fall on hard times.
Salt and Pepper/ Grey
Salt and pepper hedgehogs are so cute with their little masks :)
Price can vary with how
dark or light they are.
Darker babies are priced higher.
Reverse pintos usually have no mask, but they can have facial markings. They have the appearance of being primarily white with color spots.
Jet black markings, quills are black and usually have dark markings on their legs and feet.
Black Eyed Whites
Black eyed whites are VERY rare. They are a GORGEOUS white with black eyes. A lot of breeders have never produced a black eyed white or very few.
Chocolate or light brown coloration.
This is where the mask is split in half. One side is colored and the other is white. The price depends on the markings. Price can rise depending on the pattern of the mask.
Price can rise depending on the variation in color. Cinnamon can vary from a light diluted color to a dark hue of orange. Masks vary greatly. Full masks, quad masks and badgered stripes increase the prices (two hedgehogs on left). Standard cinnamon colors and mask are close to the two hedgehogs pictured on the right.
Full mask, no white on the mask and reaches to the top of quills to nose and extends past the eyes/to the eyes.
These are all white
with red eyes. Prices go up or down based on personality.
(Most unqiue markings start around $350)
Unique markings examples: full mask, pinto mask, blaze mask, eyeliner, mismatch ears, pintoing of quills, snowflake quills, badger strips, freckling on the legs; all can add to the price.
