10 of the Cutest Photos of Baby Hedgehogs!
Some quick facts on baby hedgehogs:
These little cuties aren’t born with spikes, that would probably hurt the momma hedgie just a wee bit, after all.
When born, their spikes are just below the skin. They don’t come through until about 2 weeks after birth.
Baby hedgehogs are also born blind! They open their eyes around the same time that their spikes start to poke out.
Most peculiar of all, these spiky squirts have baby teeth just like humans! They fall out after about 3 weeks.
They’re definitely adorable from start to finish, though.
