I have never really seen or understood the fascination with hedgehogs and over the past few years, their popularity has been on the rise. We are used to understanding the love of dogs and cats and even more exotic animals because of their ability to connect with us, their ability to show their own unique personality and the way they make our lives better.
Well, truth-be-told, I had a lot of questions about those qualities when it came to hedgehogs. I’ve never met one and didn’t realize just how similar they could be to other animals in respect to personality and enriching our lives until I came across something on Instagram.
An account called Biddy the Hedgehog piqued by interest, and once I was browsing through the pictures, all those questions about why people love hedgehogs went out the window. Biddy is a 2-year old male African Pygmy hedgehog who goes on amazing adventures with the help of his people parents Thomas and Toni.
It’s easy to understand how Biddy went from 208 followers to over ten thousand in just three days because I guarantee you will fall in love and follow quickly once you browse through a few of his fun and adorable photos.
