- Hedgehogs do not spray or scent-mark their territory like other animals.
- Males do not have a stronger odor than females and can only be physically distinguished from females by differences in their genitalia.
- Some male hedgehog owners do report that their pets self-stimulate. This most frequently occurs at night and is not widely disturbing to average pet owners.
- Hedgehogs do self-anoint as described in our Self-Anointing article.
