Fun Hedgehog Facts for Kids!


  • Hedgehogs are named so because they like to build their nests in hedges and shrubs for safety. They also make a snorting noise which sounds a lot like a warthog!


  • Hedgehogs have thousands of spines on their backs to protect them from predators. Their spines fall out regularly and grow again over the years.


  • Hedgehogs can’t tolerate dairy products. So, please don’t feed them milk or cheese.


  • These little creatures have very poor eyesight and mostly use their smell to find food.
