Continue reading to find out what it’s like to have one of these adorable animals live with you.

Hedgehog Day History

The Roman holiday of National Hedgehog Day served as the model for modern “Groundhog Day.” Although groundhogs are native to North America, other creatures, such as hedgehogs, have been utilized in Europe to help anticipate the end of winter and the arrival of spring. Other European folklore, especially in Ireland, carries on the ancient Roman heritage. In the past, seeing a hedgehog at the beginning of February was believed to portend favorable weather and warmer days; on the other hand, if they were nowhere to be found, winter would undoubtedly last for several more weeks.

In retrospect, considering that hedgehogs typically hibernate from November to the middle of March, this approach to weather forecasting may not have been that accurate! Hedgehogs do, however, occasionally come out of hibernation during these months to relocate their breeding places; therefore, any weather observers from earlier times most likely observed hedgehogs only moving to continue their hibernation.

For these animals, hibernating is a dangerous activity. Regretfully, approximately two-thirds of hedgehogs will perish during their first winter, particularly in cases where food has been in short supply. They must save up on food before winter to last them till spring, as their body temperature, respiration, and heart rate drop significantly (to as little as two beats per minute).

The US release date of Sonic the Hedgehog 3 in 1994 coincided with National Hedgehog Day. There are many well-known hedgehogs in popular culture, but Sonic is arguably the most well-known because he is the quickest of them all. This electric blue figure has appeared in several Japanese video games in addition to having his own film. Another well-known hedgehog who also happens to be a very skilled laundry person is Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle, a creation of British children’s novelist Beatrix Potter. Hedgehogs have also been well-liked throughout history, whether they are the topic of tales and poetry, revered as holy animals, or believed to have important therapeutic properties.
