This pic was taken during our neighborhood party. This hedgehog lives nearby our house. Behind our backyard are bushes and some trees. Hedgehogs feed on insects, snails, frogs and toads, snakes, bird eggs, carrion, mushrooms, grass roots, berries, melons, and watermelons.
In 2006, McDonald's changed the design of their McFlurry containers to be more hedgehog-friendly. Previously, hedgehogs would get their heads stuck in the container as they tried to lick the remaining food from inside the cup. Then, being unable to get out, they would starve to death.
It was around 8 in the evening when the children saw this hedgehog. They shouted and yelled "hedgehog". An enthusiastic crowd gathered around the hedgehog. They were very excited to see a hedgehog. As you can see the hedgehog was scared because it tried to spread its spines. To protect from intruders hedgehogs use spines. It was so scared that it did not make any moves. That's why I was able to take some pictures. When we were away it immediately ran to the bushes.
Have you seen a hedgehog so close as this?
