You have to let them adjust to each other it takes time, especiall if you have a male and a female, she is pissy towards him because he wants to breed with her and she’s not willing yet.

Thats in a hedgehogs nature, most are very pissy. There are very few that don’t mind you touching them and holding them.

I REALLY REALLY hope your not housing them together?????? Male and female (espically at her age) are to NEVER be housed together!! She can get pregnant and at that age NOT GOOD! Very unhealthy and can even kill her..... They must be seperated at all times.. They cant even have play tome together because of the chance of pregnancy....
And the chances of you really having a salt and pepper pinto are very unlikley. They are very rare to find let alone have. Shes probably a chocolate pinto or something.... I was told my female was salt and pepper but she isnt.
Anyways, hedgehogs are very solitary animals and much prefer to be by themself then have any company at all...
you need to keep there temps warm because if they get below 72 deg then they can go into hybernation and never wake up and end up dying...
Im very sorry and dont mean to be blunt lol.. but it can be the lives of your hedgies!
