When threatened the hedgehog rolls into a ball allowing the spikes to be exposed to protect it. A hedgehog is about 10 inches long and weighs 2 pounds.
Hedgehogs are the longest-living insectivores they may live up to 15 years and are immune to the poisons of most insects.
Hedgehogs are classified as insectivores, but will include frogs, bird's eggs, mice and snails in their diets. They will also eat seeds, fruit and grass if necessary.
