Here’s my girl Sammy, all dolled up like Tammy Faye Barkker after an encounter with the face painting booth at my nephew’s birthday party.

She was happy as a clam that day, largely because the party guests kept feeding her bits of other animals.

From a slightly different angle:


ETA: Tried linking them from Picasa, but I guess that went wrong. Reuploaded after saving to my machine.

I also have a video floating around of him chattering his jaw at about a million hertz in anticipation of breakfast, but I can’t seem to find it.

Princess Penelope Pricklepants

She has a blog, because of course she has a blog.

Oh, also, she was featured on BoingBoing once by luck of the flickr photo pool.

Re-uploaded, you should be able to see them now.

She’s the adorablest pet I’ve ever had. The setting her up in little sets and taking pictures part, that’s just me being a mutant.

Hmm, I thought that hedgehogs were related to porcupines, which are rodents, but it turns out they’re in Erinaceidae.

Those are great photos. Can’t say I’ve had much experience with hedgehogs, but I had a cousin who used to own them as a kid. Maybe he mishandled them or something because they were entirely too bellicose to do this sort of thing with. They bit me every time I tried to even pick them up. Also they constantly bit my cousin as well. So I’m guessing something wasn’t quite right about the setup he had and the way he treated them.

Yep, they’re much more closely related to shrews and skunks than than porcupines. In the wild they live off bugs mostly and have sharp canines with tiny incisors - not really rodent-like once you see the teeth, though the mouse-ears are reminiscent of a rodent.

Speaking of mouse ears…

We have hedgehogs in our garden (along with red squirrels), but we just appreciate them from a distance.
