Brandt’s Hedgehog

Back to Hedgehogs

Brandt’s hedgehogs have a very distinguishable black/brownish face and body along with their big ears. This type of hedgehog prefers a dry grassland, desert or mountainous area to live.

Not unlike many species of hedgehog, the Brandt’s Hedgehog is nocturnal. This species prefers arid desert areas and mountains, most likely for protection purposes. It often uses natural shelters, but will dig dens or nests if necessary.
