actually I am the only person I know who has a hedgehog.. I was at the petshop a few months back and that is where I saw my first hedgehog. Could not get the image of his cuteness out of my mind and I ordered a baby hedgie that night itself. Needles is albino and quite a rascal. I have ordered a girlfriend for him and she should be arriving soon. I have brought him out to a few events, dinners, houseparties and he is always the centre of attraction coz not many Malaysians have seen or heard of hedgehogs before, often confusing him for a porcupine. He is a good companion coz he does not make noise and does not smell ( kinda helps that I shower him daily and apply baby oil and cologne on his quills after that ).
As for the artwork, check out www.photofunia.com. Some of the photos use face recognition technology and unfortunately the programme cannot recognize hedgehog's face
