Hedgehogs have about 5,000 spiky spines, and roll up into a spiky ball when threatened. Hedgehog spines do not come out easily like a porcupine. Each spine lasts only about a year, and then is replaced by a new one.

Hedgehogs can hibernate in winter, if it gets too cold. The animals are found in Asia, Africa, New Zealand, and Great Britain, and Europe.
