The Usenet newsgroups rec.pets, alt.fan.hedgehog, and alt.pets.hedgehogs all
carry discussions of wild, as well as pet hedgehogs (in spite of some of the
names).


In addition to the newsgroups, the main hedgehog mailing list has a number of
European members and sports frequent discussions of European hedgehogs and
helping them out.

Both an individual message version and a digest version of the list are
available.

You can join the regular (individual message version of the) hedgehog 
mailing list, by sending email to the address:
    majordomoREMOVE_TO_SEND@nerg.com

with the words ``subscribe hedgehog-mail <your email address>'' (without the
double quotes, and with your own, full, email address in place of the <your
email address>) in the body of the message (not the subject line, though
putting it there too will be harmless).

You can join the digest version of the hedgehog mailing list, by sending 
email to the address:
    majordomoREMOVE_TO_SEND@nerg.com

with the words ``set digest hedgehog-mail <your email address>'' (without the 
double quotes, and with your own, full, email address in place of the <your 
email address>) in the body of the message (not the subject line, though 
putting it there too will be harmless).  

Sending a message to the list is done by sending mail to the following 
address after you are subscribed:
    hedgehog-mailREMOVE_TO_SEND@nerg.com

For more information about the list and commands, you can send a message to:
    majordomoREMOVE_TO_SEND@nerg.com
with the word ``help'' without the double quotes, in the body of the message.

In the event that you ever want to unsubscribe from either list, simply send 
a message to the ``majordomo'' address (as if you were subscribing) but use 
the words ``unsubscribe hedgehog-mail <your email address>'' (exactly like 
subscribing to the regular list but using the word ``unsubscribe'') in the 
text.  This will unsubscribe you from whichever version of the list you 
were subscribed to.


My own European hedgehog webpage can also act as a starting point for finding
more hedgehog information:

   http://HedgehogHollow.COM/eurohhog.html


The Hedgehog Helpline is now online, and has one of the best websites I've
seen for information on all aspects of European hedgehogs.

   http://www.hedgehg.dircon.co.uk/hedgehogs

You can also reach them via email at: hedgehgREMOVE_TO_SEND@dircon.co.uk -- my
thanks to Kay at the Hedgehog Helpline for letting me know about their web 
site, and for other information.


Another contender for the best online resource, for people interested in wild
hedgehogs is the Welsh Hedgehog Hospital (WHH):

   http://www.whh.org/

These are the folks behind the book _The_Natural_Hedgehog_ and have done an
exceptional job of putting great information on all aspects of helping
hedgehogs on their web site.


Another excellent resource is the Cleveland Hedgehog Preservation Society
(CHPS) [11.4] web site at:

   http://homepage.ntlworld.com/donald.martin/CHPS/chps.htm

Thanks to Donald Martin for the update, and my apolgies for misplacing the 
message along the way.

This site contains an excellent overview of what to do if you encounter a
hedgehog needing assistance, among other very useful information.

Hi, my hedgehog started running around her cage squealing so I took her out to see what was wrong. Her genital area was inflamed and she had open sores all around that area. I gave her a bath, but I'm really worried about her. Do you have any idea what this could be?
Thank you!
