Unfortunately hedgehogs are unlawful here in PA, which sucks as a result of they’re so cute! I also think sugar gliders are lovable, and all the other animals here can be interesting to have as properly apart from the tarantula (I hate spiders!).

I’m sure individuals might take care of those animals with limited or no expertise, but one thing ought to no less than reveal familiarity. I would be more involved with dedication exemplified by meeting the specific enclosure requirements.
