Hedgehog Step-by-Step Drawing Tutorial
A hedgehog is any of the spiny mammals of the subfamily Erinaceinae, in the eulipotyphlan family Erinaceidae. There are seventeen species of hedgehog in five genera found through parts of Europe, Asia, and Africa, and in New Zealand by introduction. There are no hedgehogs native to Australia and no living species native to the Americas (the extinct genus Amphechinus was once present in North America).
Hedgehogs share distant ancestry with shrews (family Soricidae), with gymnures possibly being the intermediate link, and they have changed little over the last 15 million years. Like many of the first mammals, they have adapted to a nocturnal way of life. Their spiny protection resembles that of the unrelated porcupines, which are rodents, and echidnas, a type of monotreme.

“Hilly Billy Hedgehog” Song lyrics
Hilly Billy Hedgehog, prickles and spikes,
These are the things that a hedgehog likes,
A bowl of water and a slice of bread,
A nice warm place to rest his head.
When the summer’s over
And the leaves begin to fall,
Hilly Billy Hedgehog curls up in a ball.
