RDP Thursday: Spiky

Weissbauch Igel

I have a friend, although I have not seen her for a few years. She is a farmer’s wife, has 7 children and was always doing something new. Amongst her interests she bred African pygmy hedgehogs. At the time I paid a visit, and they were very small and very spiky.

These three were only three days old when I visited. They were not yet very spiky. There spikes were  more like a punker haircut.

The babies were quite sweet, and some had their spikes in white. They are quite popular as pets, although I did not have one myself.

This was 10 years ago and we have lost touch in the meanwhile. She also bred guinea pig, tortoise and special cat breeds. but the hedgehogs were quite unique.

  1. The hedgehogs are really cute. I subscribe on Twitter to a couple of accounts where they send out pictures of hedgehogs all day long. They are just so cute and they help lift the mood when I see the photos and videos ….
