Question for my American readers (this time it really IS research! πŸ˜‰ ) - are you familiar with "hedgehogs"? I know they're not native to the US. Just wondering if I can mention them in my next book or whether it would confuse too many readers and I'm better to choose another animal... Thanks! ... See MoreSee Less

Thank you SO much everyone for your quick responses! It's really helpful. And wow - I never realised they were such popular pets in the US! πŸ™‚

I had a pet hedgehog, named Needles. My ex named him. πŸ˜‰ Adorable little guy used to go to the local grade school to meet the kids and demonstrate scent camouflage. Granted, the hedgehogs we keep as pets are African Pygmy hedgehogs, so not quite the ones you're talking about, but we know what hedgies are.

many people here in the U.S. have hedgehogs as pets..

My youngest daughter's teacher has a pet hedgehog. It is the class pet and if the child is "good" they get to hold the hedgehog on their lap in its little pouch. Cute little girl.

I had a hedgehog as a pet so I know about them. I also worked in the education dept. of a zoo and we had them as education animals. I think you're ok.

Hedgehogs are well-known here and many people have them as pets. They are definitely cute, but not at all cuddly--ouch! The author Jan Brett has hedgehogs illustrated in most, if not all of her books.

I think they're pretty well known here. And Dennis the vizsla continues trying to educate the public about their ninja ways!

We had hedgehogs as pets growing up. I hear they are supposed to bring good luck if they are found in a garden.

Oh please do! Americans know what they are,they keep them as pets.Hedgehogs are totally adorable😻

Hedgehogs, while still not very common, are generally adored in the US!

It shouldn't confuse anyone in the US. We all know what hedgehogs are! Feel free to use them in your next book!

They are adorable! A lot of people have them as pets.

They are adorable and well-known here. Mention them, by all means!

Yes we would be familiar with them, although we don't have any in the wild. It would be a shock to find one in the garden!

Cute! But I think they are illegal as pets in many states here in the US.

Yes, I'm familiar with them. The kids of a guy I know used to have one as a pet.

I love hedgehogs and I think most people here know what they are. Friends of mine have them as pets. SO CUTE.

besides them being cute, most of us have read "Mrs. Tiggy Winkle"

Love them, my niece has one for a pet.

Yes, I know what they are. πŸ™‚

Yes I have heard of them but never seen one.

Yes they are adorable!

Yes. Love hegies and they're fairly popular pets.
