When we lived in Jakarta one of the boys friends had a pet hedgehog. The boys were insanely jealous so David told them if you can find a hedgehog you can keep it. Want to guess what they found hiding in a bush today? No they didn't find a hedgehog, they found TWO hedgehogs. Thanks Dad!
Oh this can't be good! They look like they are in training to be the next Kratt brothers.
Those are either hedgehogs or really big pincushions.
Definitely hedgehogs. They are kinda cute, don't you think?
I found out a few things today. Their friend's hedgehog was a pygmy hedgehog. It could fit in the palm of one hand, it was really tiny. These guys were bigger than a softball but a little smaller than a volleyball. It would have taken both hand to pick on up. No I didn't try to pick one up but I did pet one, they are a bit prickly. My husband is lucky he is still in Saudi because the kids clearly remember Dad saying they could keep a hedgehog if they could find one. I overruled that since he isn't here. They took it better than I thought they would.
David this video is for you. Enjoy!
