About Us

We are breeders of African hedgehogs, located in Middleburg, Florida.  We are
near Jacksonville, Gainesville, St. Augustine, Lake City and surrounding areas.

We brought home our first hedgehogs in 2005 and began breeding hedgehogs in 2006, as Hood Petz¹.
We are extremely proud of our many years of experience working with hedgehogs.

Our focus is on pedigreed, healthy, friendly hedgehog babies because they make the very best pets.

Our hedgehogs are very integrated into our lives.  Our days are incredibly busy but full of quilly love.
We enjoy educating others about hedgehogs and hedgehog care.

We carefully select the hedgehogs that we welcome into our breeding program.
We work with breeders across the United States to assure the best diversity because we believe that diversity is key in producing superior offspring.

Tracking health and lineage is essential and we track all of our hedgehogs as well as their offspring to the best of our ability.

Our hedgehog babies have gone to homes all over the U.S. and even Canada.
Some of our babies have gone on to become animal ambassadors at sanctuaries, zoos, teaching institutions, and classrooms.
Photos of our hedgehogs have even been seen on television shows such as Aqua Kids.

¹ 2006 through 2019 we were fully licensed & operated under the business name Hood Petz.  Early 2020, we reduced our number of breeding animals & began operating at a hobby level under the official name Florida Hedgehogs.
