Most of us do not get to see one of these little guys up close and personal. This is Sonic the hedgehog and he is staying with us for a little while since his owner is out-of-town. He is an African Pygmy hedgehog and as you can see he is about palm size. He does not do a whole lot since he is nocturnal. When he is awake a night he is not much more active aside from snacking on some meal worms. Yum! He sure is cute, however! And he loves to curl up in my lap for a little nap while I read.
