Adorable Hedgehog's Adventures Go Viral

BY ASHTON EDWARDS, KSTU

SALT LAKE CITY – A Utah hedgehog with a unique facial feature is going viral for his adventures around our state.

University of Utah student Carolyn Jonette adopted Mr. Hodge Huffington, (AKA SIRHodge Huffington, The Cricket Slayer, the first of his name and King of the Quills), according to Michelle Carter Millburn's Facebook post.

His adorable face and what look like vampire fangs have won over about 2,000 followers on Instagram.

The Daily Mail reported "Huff" is an African pygmy hedgehog.

Carolyn told Daily Mail she struggles with seasonal depression and the toothy friend makes her smile.

"I set up the Instagram account a few months ago because living in Utah, I struggle with seasonal depression and wanted to do something that made not only myself smile but other people smile as well," Carolyn told Daily Mail. "What better way to do that than cute pictures of a hedgehog?"
