Welcome to Prickly Pet Parents! We are a small-scale ethical pedigreed hobby breeder of African Pygmy Hedgehogs located in Central Florida. We breed and raise only the happiest, healthiest hedgehogs for you and your family. We work with other ethical pedigreed breeders around the country to ensure we have a highly unique, healthy and diverse herd. We track the lineage of our hedgehogs back for many generations. Our goal is to provide you with the friendliest hedgehogs, and we begin daily handling of your babies from a young age. With the research you've already done on hedgehog ownership, the education and resources we provide and our continued lifetime support, we aim to have our hedgehogs assimilate from our home to yours with ease. We know you'll offer them the same level of care and love they've been receiving. Our hedgehogs come with a 6-month Congenital Health guarantee, lifetime support and a lifelong warranty against Wobbly Hedgehog Syndrome (WHS). We have babies with families from Tallahassee and Jacksonville to Tampa and Miami and with breeders in Oklahoma and Texas to Minnesota, Michigan and Indiana. We are proud to be listed as a pedigreed breeder with the largest hedgehog pedigree databases in the U.S., Hedgie List and NAHHI under our Herd Initials APPP. We are also an Ambassador Breeder with Hedgie List and will always assist both families and other breeders in the community. 

I have had nothing but an insanely good experience with prickly pet parents! After losing my first hedgehog I was distraught but the owner (Coley) personally reached out to me and offered me one of her hoglets from an upcoming litter as she followed my hedgehog online. I accepted the extremely kind offer and got to pick my baby Thistle from a big selection of hedgehogs! I originally got my first hedgehog from a pet store, I had never had a hedgehog from a breed and let me just say WOW! The difference is insane, Thistle is extremely kind, curious, and lively a very welcome contrast compared to my first hedgehog. I recommend all my family and friends to Prickly Pet Parents and will always be doing my hedgehog adopting here! Absolute 10/10, a truly pleasant and incredible breeder!
