The cutest hedgehogs of all time
Warning! Just one look, and you’ll be hooked! When it comes to the cutest animals in the world, the hedgehog deserves a place at the top. We ooh and aah over cute animal pictures, including those comical cute ferret pictures, but we’re obsessed with the pint-size hedgehog and its spikey hair. Wildly charming and insanely cute; we just want to scoop one up for ourselves. But there’s a caveat here we have to mention, hedgehogs are illegal to own in some states. And while they are devastatingly cute, they don’t make good pets for everyone. Each hedgehog has its own personality, but they are known for being solitary animals and might not be that into you. Plus, they’re nocturnal, leaving few daylight hours for bonding. The good news is: everyone can enjoy these adorable hedgehog pictures.
If you think your pets would fit in with these adorable pics, we want to see them! Reader’s Digest is on the prowl for the most touching, adorable, or hilarious friendships involving a pet. Submit your story and photos (and video!) for consideration. We will honor the best in many categories of friendship online, in the magazine, and on social media.

Step right up, don’t be shy. My quills aren’t barbed like a porcupine, but they still can be sharp, so handle me with care. My quills are actually thick layers of spikes made of keratin, the same stuff your hair and fingernails are made of!
