We are African Pygmy Hedgehog breeders, located in Hungary, and have been providing absolutely beautiful and healthy hedgehogs for 10 years (since 2012). We are located in Hungary, Budapest but many of our hedgehogs have already traveled to Italy, France, Holland, Denmark, Austria, Germany, Switzerland and so on.
As our original name is Hungarian: "Varjuvolgyi", which does not mean much to a non native, in English we are Hedgehog Hungary.
As many people are interested in our hedgehogs, we would like to give some information here as to how you can have a hedgehog baby from us. What we normally offer
As we are one of the the largest hedgehog kennels in Europe, we usually have 15-30 babies (6-9 weeks old) for sale at any time. Bellow you can see some videos of what we can expect from us:
Right now we have about 90 breeding animals. We make sure the babies we provide are healthy and we are always making sure that there is no inbreeding. One of our hedgehog rooms:

If we can deliver to your location, we make a video for you of the hedgehogs we have at that time. We send you the link of the video to chose the one hedgie you love the most. 3.

Sometimes there are not too many possibilities for your animal to send so in this case you have to adjust to the person's schedule that is taking you the hedgehog. 6. We ask you to send us the price of the hedgehog and the transport fee (and of the accessories you may have chosen). Money can be sent by paypal or by bank transfer. 7. After the money arrives, we send you the hedgie with the starter pack to you along with te accessories you may have chosen at an agreed time. 8. You recieve and enjoy your new lovely animal friend. :)
Sometimes the owner arranges the transport. So if you want to arrange the transport of you animals, it is totally ok for us. In this case tell the driver that the hedgehog will be no trouble for him at all. It will be in a small carrier box and will just stay there not bothering anybody. The driver will not need to give him food and water during the trip. All the driver has to do is making sure the animals is in a place where the temperature is not lower then 22-23 degrees celsius.
Sending a hedgehog is legal
Sending a hedgehog is a legal thing so you do not have to worry about that. You do not need any extra papers up to 5 animals when travelling with them. If there is a roadside check, the driver shows the certificate of the animal(s) we will provide and that is all.
Where we can / cannot deliver
We can deliver to most European countries but cannot unfortunatelly to the UK. (To be precise, we cannot get the papers for sending them to the UK, but if you can manage to get the papers, we can even send hedgies there, too.)
This is the route we take to Scandinavian countries: SEE HERE! Other countries very from time to time.
How your hedgehog travels
We always ask you to purchase a transport box from us as well as a textil hide to send your hedgehog in. This way it is 100% sure the hedgehog will not escape and he or she will not be cold either during transport. Please see picture.
What we provide with the chosen animal
All the hedgies go with a starter kit and a certificate of with the origin.
The price of our hedgies depend on age and colour but normally the price is between 100-250 Euros (plus delivery to your town (40-100 Euros depending on location)) - Price depends on animal's size, sex, look, age.
We just want to keep breeding and providing beautiful and healty hedgehogs for those that are interested in keeping these cute creatures.
