Pic of the WeeK---Hedgehog

It was amazing to see a hedgedhog so close.
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?

It must have been interesting seeing the hedgehog Faye. We do not have them in Jamaica and I have never seen one close. I have a pen-pal who has kept one as a pet. Many years ago we got an Easter egg and a picture of a hedgehog dressed in clothes was on the cup that it came with. Very cute!
