Hedgehogs aren't just funny, they're really interesting little animals too. Did you know that hedgehogs are lactose intolerant so you should never leave a saucer of milk out for them? They actually live on a diet of insects, but it won't harm them if you leave out some meat and water as a supplement to their diet. These nocturnal creatures weren't always called hedgehogs either. Originally they were known as hedgepigs or urchins. They can also walk an impressively long way for animals with such tiny legs. In just one evening a foraging hedgehog can travel up to two miles, visiting various different gardens in the process. And, finally, we bet you can't guess how many spines an individual hedgehog has on its back? Well, it's an incredible 5000 - 7000 spines. Ouch!
