Some say they're cute, some may find them beyond cute and rather weird
- make your choice here :)

You've seen how little turtles are born (click here). Now observe the stupendous cuteness power of these tiny hedgehogs. I want one (only one!) for a pet.

And here's how they look in the wild -

I've never seen them when small before!! they like ugly no-fur dogs ^^

well, I'm from the north of Spain and i've hosted some hedgehogs at my garden, most of them as big as a hand or more. They never stayed with us mora than a few weeks but returned many times, no meaning about our german Shepard dog (they ate his food!!)

Once we found a really small one, not so bigger than the displayed on the article but with developed spikes. He probably was left by his mom. We tried to feed him but he died in 2 weeks.

The are wild animals; can´t hold in a place and have to live on their own, doing what they want, going where they feel like to.

Nice article! Wonderful site! I follow you daily.

PS: nice trick to touch them: rub them from head to back, they will relax spikes.
And remember, no snails or slugs at home with a hedgehog around!

Oh god they are so cute, I leave a giant pile of wood at the bottom of my garden and there's a hedgehog or two hibernating under there - I hope one day there'll be the pitter patter of baby hedgies.
