Hedgehog Awareness Week - Day 7

Fact of the day: let’s cap this off with a general fact. All hedgies are part of the Eulipotyphla order, a name that means: ‘truly fat and blind’, which is kind of great. The second bit is probably in reference to moles, but the first bit works for our portly, prickly friends. 

It’s worth noting here that only some hedgehogs are adoptable, and if you want to have a prickly child, you should look up which ones are allowed in your area, and adopt one! Many hedgehogs are sadly abandoned, mostly because they’re misunderstood. Hedgehogs require lots of attention and specific care; they’re not just strange hamsters! So if you want a hedge, make sure you’re aware of how to keep them safe and happy first.
