  11. Von Zeppelin says:

    Berthaservant, I can’t say I ever tried licking a hedgehog’s nose, but it’s nice to know there’s someone out there who can.

  12. 260Oakley says:

    Oh, yeah Berthaservant? So can I. But my nosicle isn’t nearly as cute.

  13. kibblenibble says:

    Bwahaha @ Von Zep! This is fun being in such witty company! 🙂

  14. harmlesslittleflea (Clare) says:

    I cannot believe someone succeeded in photographing a baby hedgehog licking its own moist nosicle and the universe did not implode.

  15. awwwwwwwwwwww! soooooo adorable!!!!!!

  16. Wow what a hedgie

  17. fiaspice (karineV) says:

    @harmlesslittleflea, it’s all down to the luck of the right timming!

  19. Scrunchy face, pink little tongue, little nose. What’s not to love?

  20. Deeeelicious.

  21. DaytimeDeb says:

    I got nuthin I can say in polite company. Between this and the lizard pron, I just have a dirty mind this weekend. Is it a full moon? 😉

  22. Michelle says:

    *is confused* But where are the legs?

  23. Moist nosicle = redonkulously adorable

  24. Totally cute.


    BEST recap of a hedgehog *evars!!*

  25. ^_^

  26. Caitlin says:

    ahhh, I love the squinchy eyes!! squinchy squinchy

  27. kibblenibble says:

    Michelle: You can see the teensiest bit of one foot to the left of the nosie…and a bit of toenail, I believe….;-)

  28. All the women in my mom’s family and myself can touch our noses with our tongue. It’s a family trait that we all used to drive other family members and friends nuts. This very cute hedgie has the right idea. I used to love to watch my hedgies lick their noses, esp. when they ate baby food. The expression on this hedgie is almost the same as my late Popeye. I miss hedgies!

  29. puddlepeppers says:

    Apply my Hibiscus Honey to nosicle…wait for it…

  30. His tongue doesn’t even look real!

  31. *slurp*

    The tongue looks so disgustingly cute! lol. [in a good way]

    @derz i loved that video. I used to keep watching it. XD Best hedgehod video i’ve ever seen. XD

  32. Hallo I’m witing toexpress my gratitule towards your. I’m a under-graduate student from Bulgaria and my major is foreign trade. I need to improve my command of Englich but in Business as well.
    Yours truly
    Theodor Ivanov

  33. lol, that “comfortable posishe” is the hedgie equivalent of “f*** off”

  34. The Pulitzer of Hedge pics.

    Welcome Theodor Ivanov from Bulgaria…hey, wait a minute! Theo!

  35. berthaservant says:

    Allow me to demonstrate:


  36. Benson Hedges, Private Eye, looks EVERYWHERE for a clue. And we do mean EVERYWHERE.

  37. Pat Trenner says:

    If memory serves me, moist hedgehog noses makes Theo’s “teeth all wibbly.”

    [Not the noses themselves, the Meg-ism often used to describe them. – Ed.]

  38. Hedgehog: “My; I’m looking sharp today!!”
    (I saw this comment listed on a hedgehog pic on another blog recently: I’ve been keeping it in my back pocket; I knew it would come in handy one day… ) 😆

    [Well, now that’s out of there, you can finally safely sit back down. 😉 – Ed.]

  39. Cambridge Rat Mom says:

    because he can…

  40. sillybillysophie says:

    What a cute little tongue! Has anyone seen the little baby wombats they’re really pink!

  41. Doxylover79 says:

    Question…..How do you cuddle with these cute little guys???

  42. DoggySpew says:

    Tongue action should be a new Rule of Cute.

  43. Camille says:

    @Doxylover – oh, surely you know the answer to that one: “Verrrrry carefully.”

  44. Katrina says:

    I may have said this before but, “I love you, Camille”. But do stop calling Doxylover Shirley, it upsets her so.

    Thread jack: Anner isn’t feelng well. Her Mr. Anner told me. Feel better Anner! And, btw-that is one CYute Mr. Anner ya got there!

    Now back to our butt-biting, prickle hedgeling, weaseley-thing adoptin’ comments.

  45. brinnann says:

    Does this not qualify for “I shall leeck you?” Is it technically “I shall leeck me?”

  46. Camille says:

    @Katrina – thank you. 🙂

  47. Doxylover79 – you cuddle up to hedgies very carefully. First, wrap them in a hedgie blanket or a large towel so that no quills will poke you, and then sit in a comfy chair and put wrapped up hedgie in your lap. Make sure hedgie face is exposed and just enjoy holding your little hedgie. I used to sit with them nightly, all in their hedgie bags and they make great lap pets.

  48. Gillian says:

    I thought Step One was “Cut a hole in the box.”

  49. that is so cute i want one now

  50. tigerfae says:

    Hedgehog + tongue + cute nosey = OMGsqueeeeeepeeinpantsfalloverdie!

  51. Doxylover:
    You also put something that smells like you in the cage with them (unwashed t-shirts are good) for a while so they get used to your scent. Then they’re more likely to uncurl when you hold them.
