No one ever really talks about hedgehogs anymore. Sure, there was Sonic, but after his video game debut back in 1991, little has been said about the roly poly spike balls. That is until now. Thanks to Tokyo-based photographer, Shota Tsukamoto, and his pet hedgehog, Darcy, hedgehogs are taking center stage on the Internet. This self-named “hedgehographer” shows us there’s more to hedgehogs than being adorable.

If their darcytheflyinghedgehog instagram account is any indication, hedgehogs enjoy curling up into a ball inside of things.

But most of all, they love napping.
