National Hedgehog Day 2017

Reason to celebrate: February 2, 2017 is National Hedgehog Day.

Hedgehog Day

Ouch! Hedgehog Day highlights these loveable animals but heed this word of warning, don’t get too close. As everyone knows hedgehogs are covered in spines but whatever you decide and not have access to known is the fact that these spines are really hollow fur stiffened by keratin. Hedgehogs use their spines like a defense mechanism when threatened by by moving right into a tight ball so that all the spikes point outwards, what's less well-known is they also utilize them for cheese and pineapple throughout cocktail parties (there's not yet been any photo taking proof of this).Hedgehogs depend heavily on their own olfaction they are able to smell food under one inch of soil and may frequently sense the existence of danger. They have a tendency to look for food during the night and may travel a distance of two-3 KMs. One very strange fact about hedgehogs is they self-anoint which appears to become associated with irregular smells or tastes which makes them create large amounts of creamy saliva that they flick over their spines using their tongue (don't disturb a hedgehog in the center of this method, it’s like catching someone within the shower).There has been numerous famous hedgehogs in popular culture, the favourite most likely being Sonic the Hedgehog, he’s certainly the quickest. Beatrix Potter produced Mrs. Tiggywinkle, another well-known hedgehog who is actually very proficient at laundry however, she's never cleaned Sonic’s smelly trainers.Enjoy hedgehogs sensibly:That Hedgehog Day is both a Roman tradition preceding the current ‘Groundhog Day’, along with the release date for Sonic The Hedgehog 3 in the united states, in 1994.
