(FOX19) - Hedgehogs are becoming a popular pet choice for families.

A 12-year-old breeder named Brooklyn Hart visited FOX19 to share how to care for the animals.

She says hedgehog's need a solid-bottom cage about four square feet in size and a 12-inch running wheel.

They typically cost about $200 and live 5 to 8 years.
