Hedgehogs are an animal close to my heart. Like me, they are nocturnal, lactose intolerant, enjoy warm climates, and have a tendency to hibernate (which is something I've always wanted to do). Unlike me, they enjoy eating bugs - but they also like berries and melons. When avoiding predators, they roll into a ball with all of their spines pointing out. (*note: their spines are hollow hairs and are not barbed) They are difficult to maintain as pets, but someday I may try.
