Hedgehogs for Sale

We are simply beside ourselves with joy at Castle in the Air today, because today a little litter of half a dozen hedgehogs nestled into the store. These are a rare breed of New Zealand hedgehog -- they don't eat much and they make amazing pets. Although they're often shy at first, they warm up to you once you show them a little love. You've really got to see them to believe them. Here's a video we made of one of the litter -- Schpike -- waking up from his nap in the palm of my hand.
