Hedgehogs (sub family Erinaceinae), are a species of spiny mammals found throughout Europe, Asia, Africa, and New Zealand. Their trademark spines are hollow hairs made of stiff keratin and are not poisonous nor detach easily like the quills of porcupines. Their diminutive size and cuteness have made them exotic pets. I based my version on a juvenile hybrid which are the most common breed in the pet trade. My thanks again to the Ceramic Art Studio and Shop.
