Not to be confused with its distant, North African cousin, Atelerix algirus, this hedgehog, Suidaeus Cuddlieus, resides in North America. Like the barn owl, they inhabit barns and similar abandoned and quiet spaces, where they can spend the winter hibernating in clusters of up to seven individuals. Hedgehogs have strong family bonds, and they will often travel great distances, especially in Spring, to reach relatives. They prefer to travel by train, and can often be found napping behind carry-on luggage. Be sure to hide your crackers, as these tiny creatures can eat their weight in snacks in under an hour!
