There are 15 species of hedgehog. Plus this newly identified version.
This rainbow hedgehog was identified by my youngest daughter. At age 9, she is an animal lover and aspiring veterinarian. She is an outdoor enthusiast who enjoys creating elaborate houses for crickets and planting shrubs which will attract butterflies. When I initially designed my hedgehog pattern, she suggested creating a colorful one.
While I prefer the natural hedgie, switching it up a little was a fun challenge. It’s important to keep life interesting!
