Dearest Hedgehogologists,

As a sheepy I of course luff hedgehogs, they are soooooo cute and especially fun when a hundred are let loose in my neighbours bedroom at 3am and then I awake him by shouting "FIRE FIRE GET OUT"....oh, it's such a joy to behold  !



See Plimpy here !



awwwww..sooooo cute !!


As a porcupine he has four feet, a nose, two ears, two eyes , a nose and an ipod.

All hedgehogs possess these things but do they also have the exact same number of quills ?..and how many quills does Plimpy have anyway ?...and if they lose some do they grow back ? and do they get more as they get older ?

These are questions that I would like to know the answer to.

whajafink ?



hugs & shmishes




mwah mwah mwah !!

Surely if they can count the hairs on a persons head, the number of stars in the galaxy then they can surely count the quills on a hedgehog !...It's important...it might come up as a question on a test somewhere !..we need to be prepared for such a circumstance !
