Morning Encounter

I met this little fellow this morning. I was standing really still and he (or she, I suppose) came right up to me and started sniffing my shoes. When I moved to get a better angle with my camera, he got scared and rolled up into a thorny ball.

Did you know they make a hissing sound also when they do that? He sounded like a mini-Darth Vader! Trying to intimidate, no doubt, but so cute...


  1. In our garden we have several cute hedgehogs. I´m even giving them food. NOT milk of cource. It´s bad for them. And I know that sound. I think it sounds like a litte engine.
