 prickly creatures that are always popular 

The African pygmy hedgehog is the species of miniature hedgehog most commonly kept as a pet. They can be found in Europe, Asia and Africa, and they are an invasive resident of New Zealand.

These beautiful characters are often bought as family pets and abandoned when owners realise just how much work they are.
