There are 15 species of the Hedgehog. They have a funny appearance that is round and puffy. They have a white front and belly with a dark brown or gray spine type of backing. There may be up to 6,000 of them for each of the Hedgehogs.
They are active at night and during the day they curl up into a ball. This gives the look of them blending into surroundings so that they stay safe from predators. They live in small groups called colonies. They tend to find dry areas to create nests and that allow them to find sources of food.
