Hello, Humans!

31 Aug

Just a few glamour shots of everyone’s favourite frenemy (too presumptuous ?).

What the???

Caught red handed! (pawed?)

Bath time. He kinda really hates it. So here he is swimming, swimming, swiiiiimming towards freedom! Or so he thinks.

Drying off.

wassssssssssuuuuuuuup!

Smolder

Blue Steel

It’s hilarious to see how much his face transforms when he’s emoting. For example, grumpy after a long and tiring photo shoot, his cute mug becomes the very definition of ‘stink face’.

 Sans towel….something to smile about.

So judging by the plethora of pics and the odd ball comments, I’ve clearly gone off the deep end?  Whatevs, he’s too cute and I can’t help myself. Not so cute is a bizarre phenomenon in hedgehog behaviour known as self anointing. When the hedgehog comes across a striking new smell, it’s delicate little body breaks into a furor of contortions as it coats itself in an abundance of rabid foam, leading the unsuspecting new hedgehog owner to believe that their pog is suffering from some neurological malfunction. However, this is commonplace for a hedgehog, and it is thought to be a form of protection from predators(just one of many theories; its true cause is still a mystery).

Anyways, here are some photos of self anointing in all it’s glory.

I was hesitant to post this one as I don’t intend to give people nightmares……..but really, what the funk!

A repeat of Dochi smiling to relieve the trauma.

That second to last one will honestly be haunting my dreams. Le wah.

PS: ahahahahahhahaha my friend just sent me a link to this video. Apparently this hedgie likes to exfoliate?? Sooo good please watch!
