South African Hedgehog

Back to Hedgehogs

South African hedgehogs are found in a wide variety of habitats including grasslands, rocky areas, savannah, and suburban gardens. The most recognisable feature of this species of hedgehog is the white band across its forehead.

The Southern African hedgehog is allegedly a slow roamer, but can move surprisingly fast when feeling threatened. South African Hedgehogs face dangers from
humans, and many of them are sadly killed due to motor vehicles.
