Hedgehogs for Sale

 The most common pet species of hedgehog are hybrids of the white-bellied hedgehog or four -toed hedgehog  (Atelerix albiventris) and the North African hedgehogs  (A. algirus). Other species kept as pets are the long -eared hedgehog (Hemiechinus auritus) and the  Indian long -eared hedgehog  (H. collaris).

Hedgehogs used to be expensive in the pet market , However in recent years when there are more pet enthusiasts and breeders  that started breeding and importing them from HongKong , United States and Europe . The prices significantly went down.

Halloween Hissers (Elliptorhina javanica)

This colorful species is a must-have for any enthusiast. The adult males and females come in two forms; red-pronotum (pictured) and black pronotum. The nymphs start off a faded black color and grow through a series of intriguing color changes, eventually becoming light yellow, orange, and black striped. It is presumed that this cockroach species came from neighboring Indonesia.
