What's prickly and bites?

Our new pet.
His name is Quill. He belonged to my friends daughter, but she became allergic to him so my kids got lucky and have inherited him.

He came with the 'Guide to owning an African Pygmy Hedgehog'. Both the boys have read it from cover to cover and now consider themselves experts. Apparently you can change their natural nocturnal habits by keeping them awake all day, so that's what my three have been doing. They've fenced off parts of the garden so he can wander freely through the plants and eat bugs.

He's an African Pygmy Hedgehog. He's only bitten hard enough to require a bandaid once. Poor Breanna. Did you notice there are no pictures of her holding him :)

In the clover...

or maybe not.
Tikanii is quite fascinated, but smart enough to keep his distance.
