This is a close up of hedgehog quills. Me and my wife own a hedgehog named Quilliam and he is an amazing animal.It was hard to keep him still enough to get this picture, but here it is. Its amazing how many of these he has on his back and that he can control them for means of defense. These feel like, what I imagine, acupuncture would feel like. I have never experienced bleeding or anything from handling him, but I can feel where the quill has gone into my skin.
He is a really incredible critter! That is for sure!
