We list here a choice of homepages, which contain information exclusively about hedgehogs, as well as some websites that give beside other themes short sections about hedgehogs and hedgehog rescue. We trie to check the content of all websites, before we link to them.

We also include some links concerning exotic hedgehogs which should help people who already own those animals to care for these hedgehogs properly. However: All species of hedgehog are completely unsuitable as domestic pets, not only because they are nocturnal animals and have specific needs with regard to care and nutrition, but also because their impulse to move around is unjustifiably restricted by imprisoning them in a cage! Hence our appeal: Do not keep or breed exotic hedgehogs! Read more under our information on Exotic hedgehogs.

Forum on Hedgehog Care in German

Many internet forums offer the chance to exchange views and have questions and answers from anyone and everyone, with no indication of the competence of the participants.
We are proposing one single forum on hedgehog care which will offer the best possible information, supported by real evidence on which the participants can depend and which does not constantly change as it is correct and has been thoroughly checked.

About exotic hedgehogs as pets in Germany

Exotic hedgehogs which are kept as "pets" are unfortunately becoming more and more fashionable. Pro Igel strongly opposes the keeping of exotic hedgehogs in captivity. To buy and keep these hedgehogs goes totally against everything we know about all species of hedgehog. So that hedgehog carers, should the need arise, can contact knowledgeable people, who deal with these hedgehogs, we are publishing several links to German websites on this subject.
