Fun Hedgehog Facts for Kid

Hedgehogs are cute little creatures. Here are 7 Fun Hedgehog Facts for Kids:

  1. Hedgehogs are nocturnal
  2. They weren’t always called hedgehogs
  3. There are 15 species of hedgehogs
  4. Hedgehogs have over 5000 spikes
  5. They can hibernate
  6. Hedgehogs are lactose intolerant
  7. Their long snout is useful

Let’s start off with the fact that hedgehogs are nocturnal. That means they sleep during the day and come out at night.

The hedgehog was not always their name. Before they were called Urchins which led to the naming of Sea Urchins.

There are actually 15 different species of hedgehog out there.

They all have between 5000-7000 spikes on their back. These can be raised and lowered to respond to threats.

Each spine lasts about one year before dropping out and being replaced.

Hedgehog hibernate. Animals that hibernate hole themselves up and stay in a dormant state for winter.

I found it interesting that hedgehogs have the ability to hibernate but not all of them do.

Were you aware that hedgehogs are lactose intolerant? You should never leave milk out for them to drink. Water is just fine with them.

Did you know that they use their long snout to hunt?

It is ahead of their mouths which makes it easier to forage for their staple diet of insects, worms, caterpillars, and berries.
