Why? You can't pet them, they sleep all day so you hardly see them. They're cute sometimes, but not any cuter than a gerbil or a cat.

We had hedgehogs when I was growing up.  They make fair pets, albeit messy ones (Marking territory by shiatting all over the place... or at least ours did).

I remember quite fondly chasing down grasshoppers to feed to them, as well as the arena-death match we once had between a Katydid (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tettigoniidae) and our male hog (Spoiler, he won).

One of ours would un-ball and run around on a blanket on your lap.  He was also okay with my sister holding him in her hands.  I've known cats that weren't nearly as social as that.

They're cute and can be personable, but they also have some fairly needy requirements as pets, so, sadly, I'm sure there will be thousands of pet hedgehogs suffering premature deaths due to idiots deciding they're SO CUTE and not taking care of them properly.

You're too optimistic. I see them being released and devastating the local ecosystem.

Have a hedgehog.  They require a ton of attention to be friendly, and some just aren't.  Ours is somewhere in between.  Wake her up and she is a pokey ball of doom.  If she is up and around she might be ok with you, might not.  They are not incredibly social....only mildly so.

Occasionally hilarious pets.

If I had a boy hedgehog, I would name it "Patches."
If I had a girl hedgehog, I would name it "Celia"
If I had a fat hedgehog, I would name it "Slimb"
If I had a skinny hedgehog, I would name it "Costal"

If I had my hedgehog was a little shiat, I'd feed it vismodegib.

Ours used to be scared of live-bugs until they jumped into him, once they attacked him he was all about the "stand your ground and munch on their dismembered bodies" approach.  Most of his killing blows were reactionary bites to something jumping at his forehead-spikes.

Also, once you're a hedgehog owner and can do the hedgehog wheeze sound you can use it to great advantage in mimicking them for "cute animal" people.

I've always been told they aren't that great of pets for the average person, but that's not all that different than a lot of cute mammalian creatures.  Kind of like sugar gliders -- cute as hell, neat, but nothing like having a cat or dog.

"If you can't have a hedgehog, you can always bury a pin cushion in some wood chips," he said. "Due to the hedgehog's nocturnal behavior, you will get the same level of interaction. Otherwise, maybe a hamster might suit you," Salmoni said.

Hamsters are nocturnal and just as terrible of a pet. Just less illegal.

Not cool. Seriously.

I was drinking a bit before I came in here and after re-reading your post 5 times I became very concerned that I was farther along with the liquor than I thought.

I just typed "Hedgehog" into the Youtube search bar and by the time I got to "Hedge" it had autocompleted as "Hedgehog reacts to farts."

We took care of a hedgehog that had been at the kids school.  It was great, we would put it out and it would roam around and the cats would sit near it and interact with it but not hurt it at all.  Unfortunately it eventually developed an infection and died although we found out it had lived for a hedgehog a long life.  It was kind of hard to cuddle, but you could pick it up and hold.  Definitely had a load of personality and was fun to have, and was great fun to watch as it chased cats 4 plus times its size.

Good if one can care for one adequately, sounds as if.  Know for sure they're illegal to keep as pets in Sweden.
