Hedgehogs shed their baby quills, and grow adult spines in a process called “quilling.”
The average hedgehog lifespan is around 2-5 years.
Hedgehogs are around 7 to 9 inches long, and weigh 1 to 2 pounds.
Hedgehogs have approximately 6,000 quills.
The hedgehog gets its name from the pig-like grunts it makes while foraging through hedges and undergrowth.
