Meet the “Vampire” Hedgehog Famous on Instagram

Meet Sir Hodge Huffington the Cricket Slayer, a 3-year-old African Pygmy hedgehog who Utah student Carolyn Parker rescued. Parker created an Instagram account for “Huff” and posted pictures of him online.



His adorable “vampire fangs” and outfits have resulted in a lot of online fans and over 12,000 Instagram followers.


“All hedgehogs have little sharp teeth like Huff,” Parker told Buzzfeed. “It seems his may be a little more pronounced, but for the most part I just try to get pictures that show off that cute feature. Living in Utah (where days in winter are short and cold), seasonal depression is something a lot of people deal with – including myself. I started the Instagram account to share something that made me happy with other people.”
