Did you know that hedgehog's spikes are actually hair stiffened by keratin? Better be easy on that new keratin shampoo that you bought. But we're sure you won't be surprised by a definitely scientific fact that hedgehogs are absolutely adorable.

That Hedgehog Day is both a Roman tradition preceding the modern ‘Groundhog Day’, as well as the release date for Sonic The Hedgehog 3 in the USA, in 1994. Today is Hedgehog Appreciation Day, what better time to spread the message? So here it is.

Hedgehogs rely heavily on their sense of smell; they can smell food under an inch of soil and can often sense the presence of danger. They tend to search for food at night and can travel a distance of 2-3 KMs.
