Cute Overload :D
Hee! You could totally pick up this mini hairbrush and place in your fro for the day.
Sender-Inner Karen is Imagining that teeny little schnozzle sniffing that finger [gracias for the call-out]
Let’s jump straight to the punch line: VERY CAREFULLY
I believe the word I’m looking for is something along the lines of BLEEN.
Omg. I totally thought that was a sea cucumber at first. I was glad when I figured out the schnozzle. (Not that sea cucumbers aren’t cute in their own ways, but…I do prefer a good hedgehog.)
watch for the spikes during mid-snorgle.
O M G !!!
Can’t get my eyes off that.. that.. hairbrush-cutie-thingie-baby.
*pops sea cucumber in mouth*
Wait it’s not a sea cucumber!?
*takes out of mouth and put’s back in snorgle position*
awww, veritable pin cushion :)
Ouch! but cute none the less.
taj–definitely kissing cousins
OMG, is that a mini-hedgie??? I was wondering what the heck it was (I agree it looks like a sea cucumber or sea slug of some sort). The little nosicle is to die for, and I can detect wee front and back paws beneath those spikes.
Snorgilicious. My kitties would be so jealous of snorgle time.
I didn’t realize that baby Hedgehogs were so small!!!! He would fit perfectly on the top of my hair bun, WANT!!!!!
*pushes hair aside to make room for teeny hog*
Bebbeh hedgehog’s spikes are even sharper than their parent’s usually, so watch out!
Animal, vegetable, or mineral?
Eet’s so preeckly!!
*picks it up and snorgles it oh, so very gingerly*
The text in the picture looks like it says “snorglet.”
J, if that’s true, I feel reeeeallly sorry for that bebeh’s momma. O_O
That must be brutal for the mother coming out at birth. Perhaps coming out head first isnt so bad.
How do they– oh, right. ;)
It’s like a giant Wooly Worm Caterpiller!
Are those NOSE WRINKLES?!?
The quills are soft at birth, they harden when exposed to air for a while. Which is a good thing, because otherwise … yow. (If there weren’t children reading this, I’d bring up the Hedgehog Song.)
D’awww, widdle hoglet.
Looks like a caterpillar!
This looks like a week to 2 week old baby hedgehog. When born, the quills lay flat and covered with a membrane to let it slide out of it’s mother’s birth canal. Upon exposure to air, the membrane dries out and the quills come out in all it’s glory. I’ve had 6 week old baby hedgies and yes, their quills are sharper. As hedgies get old, their noses get grayish and wrinkly, as one old man hedgie I had. Hedgies are irresible!
I personally think it’s more of an “ehn” than a snorgle, but whatever. :D
Theres no eyes…..
Where are the eyes…..
Catapillars are spozed to have eyes…..
MY HEAD IS GOING TO EXPLODE!!!!!!! TOOOOO CUTE!!!!!!
Eet looks like the burrs you find in your socks (or on your dog) after hiking!
here’s a cool site with neato pictures of baby hedgie development :)
Reminds me of those old brush rollers that Mom set her hair with!!
That hair brush is adorable and teeny-teeny tiny
OMG I thought it was a tiny sow bug or something, then I saw the snout and noticed the hand proportion, and it turned from “eww” to “aww!”
Ohmigosh, I had no idea hedgehogs started out so leetle-bitty!
OMGOODNESS!!!! that ear totally looks like floppy puppy ear, not joking!! It’s cute and a little odd looking at the same time!! Tee hee, they are quite cute.
I thought it WAS a hairbrush, so…. and then I saw the teenty little face!
i dont find them that cute…
Ugh, I’m sorry but baby hedgehogs are not cute at all. Down right disturbing and weird and make me queezy.
So darn cute. I really wish hedgies were legal in California. But they’re not. Along with gerbils and ferrets. Sigh.
OMG, is that for real??!! I have never seen a hedgehog before, adult or baby…what a strange wonderful thing.
So cute. Thanks jamela for sharing that link to the hedgie site. Great site and the hoglet development pics are fantastic.
to spb: you are so welcome. :) we have 3 hedgies in our little zoo. :) (colorado)
AWWWW! Squealy adorable! (Now why aren’t my newly hatched baby budgies this cute?)
AWWWWWWWWWWW. Teeny tiny *ouch* prickly behbeh!
Oh, the NOSICLE WRINKLES!!!
@Jupiter Star: Babeh Budgies???!!! Bet they’re anerable!!! Hope you post some pics!
I think it looks like a prickly pee pee.
Thought it was a large caterpillar at first, ’til I saw that little nosicle.
Bears a striking resemblance to my pocket brush.
are the little spines pokey yet? It looks sleepy….aww!
Hey, who owns one of these critters? What do you feed them?
“(Now why aren’t my newly hatched baby budgies this cute?)”
Just wait until the terrible twos. No more snorgling then, let me tell you :-P
Where can i get one? my hairs a mess always and i need a portable brush! it will coordinate puurrfictly wit my kitteh bag and puppen shoes!
