Did you know that hedgehog's spikes are actually hair stiffened by keratin? Better be easy on that new keratin shampoo that you bought. But we're sure you won't be surprised by a definitely scientific fact that hedgehogs are absolutely adorable.

We have gathered some empirical data to ground our claim. Today is Hedgehog Appreciation Day, what better time to spread the message? So here it is. Help us collect more evidence of cute by uploading your photos of these tiny creatures!
