About the Hedgehog

A hedgehog is a small and spiky animal with a round body, short legs, and a pointed snout. They are found in Europe, Asia and Africa and are known for their unique defense mechanism of rolling into a tight ball, with their spines facing out, when they feel threatened.

Hedgehogs are nocturnal, which means they are active at night and sleep during the day. They are omnivores and eat insects, snails, and other small animals, as well as fruits and nuts.

They are interesting creatures to watch as they snuffle around looking for food and explore their environment. Hedgehogs have become popular pets in some countries, but it’s important to make sure you have the proper setup and food to take care of them.
