White southern crackerso are as much a novelty down South as stoner surfer dudes in Southern California. Yeah there around but only the media take them seriously.
African Pygmy Hedgehogs have never been wild animals in North America. If you don't provide for their every little specialized need, they won't prosper.
That being said, when your hedgehog is happy with you, they will engage in many behaviors that they would not consider back in Algeria. They come out in the daylight to run on their wheels, sit on your lap, or even stroll around the yard (under close supervision).
It also varies with the personality of the hog. Some are pretty undomesticated, and would stay curled up in a tight ball if you hauled them out in the daylight.
Not being argumentative--I know you are just being concerned. I just wanted to say, that hedgehog does not look like he is under duress. Some of them turn into little 'hams!'
Cold-blooded, warm-blooded, fur, feathers, fins, scales, shells, skin & insects, whatever, all non-human animals respond/react to pleasure & pain the same as the human animal. Aside from the diversity of life, we are all one on this planet.
Hedgehogs are nocturnal. This poor baby is being taken outside during the day and disrupting his whole existence. Doesn't seem like a great idea making these little wild animals pets.
