Daurian Hedgehog

Back to Hedgehogs

This is another species of hedgehog with noticeably big ears. These ears help the hedgehogs to sense movements of their prey, which includes insects, small rodents, small reptiles, baby birds and eggs.

The Daurian hedgehog chooses to habit in scrublands and in rock areas which is likely to be for greater protection and concealment from predators. Like most hedgehog species in temperate regions, the Daurian hibernates during the winter.
