Lil Weirdo

Tonight was a standard night at our house. I came home from the barn, made some dinner and then played with my hedgie while watching a tv movie.

I was eating a mini pack of skittles left over from Halloween and accidentally dropped one. Gojou was all about this skittle. Hedgehogs do a weird thing called anointing. Wiki puts it this way: "Hedgehogs occasionally perform a ritual called anointing. When the animal encounters a new scent, it will lick and bite the source, then form a scented froth in its mouth and paste it on its spines with its tongue." It's pretty bizarre. It freaked me out the first time he did it and he does it a lot. Thought you might want to check it out:
