Hedgehogs are very cool and interesting creatures. I had a pair years ago and they had babies together! The babies were sooo adorable. Their *snuffling* sound was so endearing. I don't think it's illegal to own them here in Canada!? However, I also got mine from a breeder. You needn't worry with the signed care papers.
I would love to see some photos of Sonic and Knuckles...only if you feel comfortable with that.
