#356 Darcy the Flying Hedgehog

Darcy is the epitome of cuteness… and we all know Japan loves kawaii.


Her genius photographer owner, Shota Tsukamoto, has made her world famous.

You can buy a book compilation of her photos and check out her instagram.

Pigmy hedgehogs are the third most popular small animal at the moment (according to Kojima Pet’s sales).


They’re called harinezumi/ハリネズミ in Japanese, which means “needle mouse”.

P.S I’ve started a side project about my own harinezumi on this blog.
