Tiny Hedgehog Goes Camping, And His Pics Are The Best Thing You’ll See Today

We know you remember Azuki, the tiny Japanese hedgehog who goes on camping trips. His perky ears, button nose, and delightful roundness are just impossible to forget. Well, the cute hedgehog recently traded his cozy dream house in for a set of miniature Coleman camping gear and took a trip to the great outdoors. Equipped with essential camping gear – tent, kayak, and barbecue, he was all set for success and pretty much had the time of his life. Just looking at his photos makes us want to get our camp on. It also really, really makes us want a hedgehog pet. Like, right this second.

Take a ride on the wild side and see the best moments from the cutest hedgehog’s camping days below, and don’t even try to tell us you’ve ever been as happy as this magnificent little guy.

Me too. Someone could make a mint just making those "display" tents and selling them on eBay.

I don't know about all of the gear, but at one store I go to (in their camping section) they have little minature tents, so you can get an idea of what yours will look like when it's set up.....

Amazon sells tiny tents. I'm sure .com sells them if .ca does. Marshall Small Pet Camping Set https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B001UTM1NY/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_LXa6zbXJ2B1MZ

Hedgehogs are cute, until you actually get one. (They're little brats!)

But cute enough to get away with being little brats.

So cute, but in Germany it´s not allowed to have hedgehogs as pets, you may only take the too small hedgehog babies inside to hibernate if you know how to do this, then you gotta release them again in spring!!! 💖💖💖

Sven Ewers

That's actually not true. The hedgehog you're seeing there is a African pygmy hedgehog (German name: "Afrikanischer Weißbauch-Igel") and it's perfectly okay to have on as a pet in Germany, because, unlike their European brethren living out in the wild, the African Pigmy hedgehog isn't placed under any special animal protection laws. It should be noted though that this type of hedgehog is still a really demanding animal to keep (in the US there seems to be a trend to have a pet-hedgehog and people are keeping them in the most irresponsible ways imaginable). They require loads of space, a very special diet and a room with a constant temperature. So the responsible way to keep a hedgehog is a lot of work and not recommended for beginners, but legally perfectly fine and possible.

We had a hedgehog. Never thought to dress her up. They hate being on their backs, BTW. The one in the kayak shot is looking to bite somebody, and she would be well-justified. This is actually cruel.

I've had a number of little African white bellied hedgehogs as pets and I love them. These pictures make me want to go out and buy more. They always ran free in the house which made it interesting when visitors would stop over and they would see these little critters racing around--fast enough they couldn't really make out what they were. But we loved them dearly!
