Hedgehogs make great pets for shy people. It’s true! Hey you, hiding behind that tree—hanging out with a Hedgehog will give you the confidence to downgrade to small shrubs, or maybe even a dandelion! No one’s gonna mess with you when you’ve got this kind of prickly protection.Be aware! This nocturnal beast has a soft n’ fluffy front, protected by a more hardcore-fuzzy textured back. Without his bristles, a Hedgehog would just be a rather fat hamster! 15 squishy inches of nocturnal bristly mammal, polyester fiber, ages 3 and up.
