Be careful when taking the bow off this creature of the woods! The embarrassed forest hedgehog my not want to scratch his owner on purpose, but he can still hurt his owner with his sharp needles! You would do better to wrap this cutie into a warm blanket or any other piece of cloth—and then you can take him freely into your hands! And don’t be surprised if your new pet starts yawning and preparing to sleep soon—by December most of the hedgehogs are already hibernating! You may give this gift to members of another race.
