There are 17 different species of these adorable little guys. I have always thought a hedgehog would make an awesome pet, my husband however does not agree. The spines of a hedgehogs, are stiff hollow hairs & they are not poisonous. They are hard to remove & only fall out once in a hedgehogs lifetime. A process called “quilling”. Your little one can make their own hedgehog using their handprints for their spines!
