4. Hedgehog breeding is easy and profitable: Not the case. Special skills are required to be a conscientious hedgehog breeder, and uninformed breeding presents very real dangers to both mother and babies.
5. African hedgehogs are "pygmies": False. The term "pygmy" was attached to imported Central African and Algerian hedgehogs by pet wholesalers in North America so as to differentiate them from their slightly larger British and European cousins. Actually, there is considerable weight overlap between these species.
