African Pygmy Hedgehog / Cincinnati Zoo

Shane, the baby African Pygmy Hedgehog, is about one quarter of his adult size in these recent photos. In the wild these hedgehogs are incectivores, dining on worms and grubs, but in Zoos, they typically are fed kibble, closer to what a pet dog or cat may eat. Shane will be part of Cincinnati Zoo’s Outreach Program, which introduces school students and zoo visitors to varied kinds of exotic animals — via ZooBorns
