I’m from the Erinaceidae family.

My back is covered in hollow spines to protect myself from predators. I’m not very sociable so I like to stay on my own most of the time. If I get too cold I like to hibernate but if gets too hot and dry (like in the desert) I will aestivate and wake up when it cools down. If you want to feed me I love cat food.
