Baby Animal of the Week series. My dear friend Suné Storm and I Google search baby animals to smile and warm the cockles of our hearts when we have a bad day. My brother, Frank, told me he really wants a hedgehog, so this post is dedicated to him. FYI, baby hedgehogs are called hoglets.
Hedgehog fun fact: An array is the grouping term for hedgehogs. They rely on hearing owing to their poor eyesight, and when they smell something pungent, they exhibit a strange behaviour called ‘self-anointing’ in which they rub frothy saliva on their quills.
