    Thumbs up Reptile Expo pickups - something unexpected! (DUW)

    Ahhh! I am so excited. The reptile expo I went to was nice. It was a brand new one in St. Louis so there weren't too many people there, but I liked most of the vendors. Personable and helpful.
    I went there originally because my boyfriend and I were very interested in a tortoise, a baby that we could raise.
    Well... I definitely found one! A baby Sulcata!

    Everyone say hi to... SPEEDY LOUIE!







    toitiss butt!! ^

    He is so cute and was a great price. His enclosure is all set up now, though I have no pics.
    My other buy was verrrry different though, and I've had one before but not for years...

    INTRODUCINNNGGG... Kensington the albino hedgehog!















    There he is! The last two pictures are of me holding him. Two of my other friends can be seen in the other pics sorta... lol.

    Alright everyone, enjoy! and if anyone has a hedgehog or has had one, gimme advice! C:

    Awwe! We have sulcatas at work but they are much larger! The largest one is something like 50-60 lbs and he is awesome! I haven't ever seen such a small one and i love the tortoise butt!

    I love your hedgie too! I've never seen an albino one before. How is his temperment? He looked quite calm in the pictures.

    Congrats on your new babies!

    Thank you so much guys

    Katie, that's so cool that you work with sulcatas! ahahah his little BUTT!! so wee little.
    Also, Kensington's personality is great for just having got him! I don't use gloves to pick him up so when he puffs I do get prickled, but he needs to get used to my scent. Once he is, he won't puff much. He's already doing great though! I suggest them.

    Thank you Megan! I know... SORT of an impulse-buy on the hedgie, but I've had experience with them before!

    They are both way too cute! I've had my eye on hedgehogs for a while now, how social are they?

    Thanks so much Joli!

    Grublet, they really just need to get used to you. My first hedgie who I had for six years (Miss Pricklemuffin) got used to me gradually over a few weeks. They are a joy to keep and omg... their little noses and how they lick their lips. SO CUTE. and even when they're mad...

    Thank you both!!! :'D
