African Pygmy Hedgehogs

Here at Prickly Pets we breed and sell gorgeously cute African pygmy hedgehogs for pets. African pygmy hedgehogs make wonderful exotic pets for all the family and are a great alternative to a furry pet. Pet hedgehogs are easy to care for, are not known to cause allergies and are legal to keep in the UK.

About us

Prickly Pets is based in Basildon, Essex, London and is managed by well-known hedgehog breeder, Chris Endell. After some time of providing hedgehogs in partnership, the success of the business has enabled Chris to continue the business solo as Prickly Pets. Chris works hard to provide the most suitable African pygmy pet hedgehog for his customers and is considered a local expert!

Prickly Pets will give you all the help and advice you need to help you decide if an African pygmy hedgehog is the right pet for you. And if you do buy a pet hedgehog, we have everything you need to help you care for him or her properly. You certainly won't regret taking one of our loveable hedgehogs home!
