This is Bramble, pretty much the cutest hedgehog you'll ever see, haha. He is an African Pygmy Hedgehog, which is actually a descriptive name, not a species name. These domesticated hedgehogs are hybrids of two species of wild African hedgehogs.
Hedgehogs are illegal to own as pets in several U.S. States, including California, as well as in other countries. Please be responsible and research the area you live in before acquiring a pet! Bramble is a resident of Happy Hollow Zoo's Education Department and is able to be so due to legal permits.
