Today, I was playing with my hedgehog and he started licking my face. I thought it was super cute, until he latched onto my eyelid with his teeth. He then created a ball of saliva and blood and coated his body in it. FML

The saliva thing is called "self anointing". There's a lot of debate as to why they do it, but it's a pretty normal hedgehog behavior. They taste/smell something unusual, foam up, and smear it all over themselves. The biting thing is called "being a dick" and is also a not unusual hedgehog behavior.

Well shitting hell, quite friendly that was.

He has now marked his territory.

A hedgehog? You're aware of how extremely unhygienic that is? They are hosts to way more parasites than regular pets.

It will be an African Pygmy hedgehog, not a regular wild English hedgehog (which as illegal to keep as pets). They're a widely kept and healthy exotic pet, that are completely hygienic as long as they are kept properly and do not carry any parasites

How unhygienic... what is, exactly? Owning a hedgehog? Being licked by one? What mouth parasites do they supposedly have that you wouldn't find in the mouths of other common pets?

not if you actually take care of them....

what other pets do you have a badger? a raccoon?

I used to have a coatimundi. Same as a raccoon. He was amazing. ❤️ Snuffy

So that's their secret for going fast.

Nice to see all the hard work put into the new interface. Now there's double the ads and crashes! Yeepee!!

That's seriously metal. I'd unleash that brutal monster on my enemies.

Should've fed him chili dogs
