In honor of these endearing animals, Lynnae G., a licensed veterinary technician from our large-animal department, kindly shared some photos and information about her two hedgehogs, Dexter and Hiro.
I have had Dexter for about four years. Dexter loves to snuggle and get belly rubs.
He loves to run on his wheel and eat mealworms. While I was in vet tech classes, I would take Dexter with me every night. He made friends with everyone and even charmed an instructor into being his godmother. He would usually sleep in my shirt during class and sometimes he would cruise around the table looking for worms.
