Scent-Marking and Other Nasty Habits
  • 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.┬áThis 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.
