My kids both did a learning week all about hedgehogs. My son was able to tell me that they are nocturnal and that is why we do not see them during the day!

They also like to roll up into a ball when they are scared and think they are in danger! Can your kids tell you any hedgehog facts?

This is one of my favorite animal paper plates to make especially during October and November.
