Look at him licking his lips. Love the tongue action.

I really wanted the hedge to tip his head and pick up the food left on his chest--it's an ability I wish I had.

Tiny tongue action!
*shake shake shake shake*

Whoaaaaaaaaaa! Holy face contortions!

That's really cute, but its also bad because hedgies don't have very strong teeth and having to work that hard to crunch something will break them! Part of the reason he was pulling his hood down was because it hurt.

What is it eating? Candy? Special hedgie snacks?

Verbal
 |  Feb 12, 2008 at 08:30 AM

That is so funny and cute! My favorite part is the tongue action afterwards!! What is he crunching on? It looks rather hard.

Candace

ROFLMAO! OMG! What a hi-LAR-ious way to begin my day with a good laugh and a dose of cuteness! Oh, that felt good!

Sweet Nut Sampler!!! Did you check him smacking his little hegie lips? Hedgie num nums must taste so good!

boomer

I think he's chewing an Everlasting Gobstopper (and in parts of the world not familiar with the candy actually named after the Wonka creation, it's just a small jawbreaker, really).

Would an animal really be so hungry that it would hurt itself trying to eat? Gonna look up the natural diet of hedgehogs and see if it consists of more than just bugs...summa dos beetles can be pretty hard to cronche...

Gwenny
 |  Feb 12, 2008 at 08:43 AM

He's smiling! He's so cute.

Celia
 |  Feb 12, 2008 at 08:47 AM

That definitely looked like a baby carrot to me... he's probably not gonna break his teeth on that. I wish I could keep my nose-ical moist by licking it.

Blyhagd
 |  Feb 12, 2008 at 08:49 AM

Aww Gawd I'm SO glad it wuddn't a beetle. The thought! Grlghzz. No matter how cute Mr. Hedgie McSpeedytongue is.

pyrit
 |  Feb 12, 2008 at 08:49 AM

I don't think that was a gobstopper...if it was, someone out there is a very bad hedgie parent! My hog is so rude when he eats, but I love the crunching noise he makes when I give him a worm!

Amanda
 |  Feb 12, 2008 at 08:49 AM

Whoa. That would totally make up for the pointy bits.

Babs
 |  Feb 12, 2008 at 08:50 AM

Ohh my, spiky eyebrow wagglings and squinched eyes, tooo stinkin' cute! Not to mention the way he can wrap that tongue ALLLL the way around his snout like that! *swoon*

Darsa
 |  Feb 12, 2008 at 08:51 AM

I like how his little leg comes out at the end.

Jorden
 |  Feb 12, 2008 at 08:57 AM

As a past proud parent of three hedgehogs, I can attest that yes...they do look like that when they eat.

That's nothing though. Wait till you get a vid. of one annointing.

MLO
 |  Feb 12, 2008 at 08:59 AM

Dang it must take them forever to eat anythings!

I'm going with carrot.

kerrymc
 |  Feb 12, 2008 at 09:03 AM

What?
No.
Can't deal.
The muzzle-licks at the end? I am now dead.

Larisa
 |  Feb 12, 2008 at 09:04 AM

As a hedgie parent I would be concerned about choking with anything that large/hard.

doug
 |  Feb 12, 2008 at 09:17 AM

I love the way he twitches his nose to sniff the air... awe ... cute!

Tara
 |  Feb 12, 2008 at 09:19 AM

I love the chewing and lickling action at the end. McChompersons

electric
 |  Feb 12, 2008 at 09:23 AM

OH GOOD GAWD!!!!! not in my wildest, cutest dreams did i ever imagine such silly and adorable facial movements. REDONKULOUS!!!!!

cut that fruit up smaller next time, peeps. you don't want to have to perform the heimlich on little hedgie mcpricklesons!! squish squish

jen
 |  Feb 12, 2008 at 09:26 AM

Everlasting gobstoppers are different colors on the inside. Judging from the way the food 'splits' (I think the technical term is 'cleaves' but that makes me giggle) I'm pretty sure it's a small piece of carrot.
Food debate aside...AWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!

Annie
 |  Feb 12, 2008 at 09:27 AM

I especially loved the fast nom-nom-nom he made at the end, before licking his nose. It was like he couldn't wait to get his mouth empty, for another treat!
Schweeeeeeet.

Janni
 |  Feb 12, 2008 at 09:29 AM

it's hard shell bubble gum, so he can blow bubbles in the next video.

Holy smooshy face, Batman! Squeeee

Beth
 |  Feb 12, 2008 at 09:40 AM

I like the way the spikes move with the chewing, a carrot,I think.

Hon Glad
 |  Feb 12, 2008 at 09:54 AM

I've never seen a hedgie doing that, it's so sweet!

Holy Cuteness
 |  Feb 12, 2008 at 09:58 AM

I sent this in weeks ago (or something very similar). What do I have to do to get a submission accepted? Waaaah. But teh cute makes me feel better, a little.

HAHAHAHAHAHA.

Our wild hedgehogs chow down on a bowl of Hedgehog Kibble we put out for them every night, and it's hard as a rock, so I think he'll be fine.

When I put out live mealworms for them, I can get to about three feet away from them. They won't give up a tasty mealworm for anything. I daren't take a picture as I'm afraid the flash will scare them off though.

Hope they come back with a litter this spring!

Kind of like a little old man. Anyone else remember those Scandinavian hedgehog people figurines from the 1960s?

Jack Ruttan
 |  Feb 12, 2008 at 10:10 AM

It's a bit less cute when they're nomming a bug, but still.

Joha
 |  Feb 12, 2008 at 10:11 AM

Wow. Never knew.

All I know about hedgehogs is that they make great croquet balls. And a famous porn star is nicknamed "The Hedgehog."

Plus that hedge looks like my boyfriend.

Sweet cracker sandwiches! That is one of the cutest things I have EVER seen!

Lisa
 |  Feb 12, 2008 at 10:32 AM

My hedgie turned up his nose at carrots, but crickets or other bugs he found to be manna from heaven (or the back yard). Hedgehog chow is pretty crunchy, so I'm not too worried about this guy.

MamaDawn
 |  Feb 12, 2008 at 10:39 AM

Nah, if it hurt to eat it, he wouldn't put up with it. Mine not only, for whatever reason, always leaves the dried peas behind from his food mix, but he also sometimes snubs the treats I KNOW he likes... so they're not beyond refusing something unpleasant.

 |  Feb 12, 2008 at 10:41 AM

Jeepers, is that a freakin' Jawbreaker? He seems to sure enjoy it, anyway. What a cute-umpie.

And I sent this in a few hours ago, but instead this "Tina" gets all the honor! DAAAMN YOU TINAAA *waves fist at thin air*

Anyway. Yeah, probably the most redonk thing ever to hit the animal side of youtube in quite a while. *dies a bit*

Kristin
 |  Feb 12, 2008 at 11:16 AM

Kristin, let's share our pain. Maybe someday we'll have submissions accepted. And maybe we'll get different submishes accepted, so we don't take away from each other's glory.

debg
 |  Feb 12, 2008 at 11:32 AM

Honestly it wasn't cute but scrary. He looks like he's goin to chocke. Some people mentioned it looked like carrot, well, uncooked carrot should never be given because of the chocking hazzard.

Yes hedgie food (read cat food) is hard, but comes to peices easyly unlike carrots.

And to to those saying they wouldn't eat if it hurts, well many hegehog died because of hard food geting caugth in their roof. It might have hurt them, but they ate it anyway.
