Hedgehogs are already incredibly adorable creatures, thanks to their small and innocent faces, and their rotund bodies. Even though they are covered in fairly prickly quills, there is something immediately loveable about hedgehogs.
But what’s cuter than a simple hedgehog? A sleeping hedgehog!
Sleeping hedgehogs are incredibly adorable, but the trouble is, witnessing one in real life isn’t always so simple, so if you want a hit of absolutely adorable hedgehog action, then you should definitely check out these images of hedgehogs taking some much needed naps!
