It's amazing the noise that these cute little animals make and they are quite mischievous as well, I remember been on holiday once and putting down a key to the caravan and a little hedgehog came along and started dragging it away!

What we saw was a small porcupine, and a lovely little critter it was.

I had a hedgehog living in my backyard shed...it used to come hang out under the bedroom window at night. I thought he was a burglar at first!

They LOOK so cute, but I wonder if I'd like them in my back yard? I don't think they are around our area--plenty of other critters, tho!
