Animal of the day – 11/29/2010 – The Hedgehog

Hedgehog

The animal of the day is the Hedgehog. (Did you know: These lil guys are easily tempted into English backyards with a bowl of raw minced beef! Hedgehogs are GREAT for keeping pests away from gardens, which is why many people in england try to attract them to their yards!

Just like humans baby teeth, a hedgehog actually loses it’s ‘baby spines’ and growns adult spines at a certain point! This is called ‘quilling’!
