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.
In the wild: 1 to 3 years In captivity: 4 to 6 years

Can curl into a ball covered in spikes. Its also solitary making it hard to find.
