While mother hedgehog takes a nap, it's party time for baby! Did you know that their prickly quills are actually specialized hairs that are hollow and stiff? Baby hedgehogs are born with a protective membrane covering their quills, which comes off in a few hours.
African pygmy hedgehog This baby African pygmy hedgehog is possibly the cutest thing I have ever had chance to photograph. So small and full of character. He was a little poser in the tunnel & while sleepy but once he woke up a bit was running around and a little harder to shoot!
