PLEASE don't rush out and get a hedgehog! Yes, they're ''cute,'' but that doesn't mean ''domesticated pets." I use African hedgehogs regularly in programs at the've NO IDEA how much they can poop and how it smells!

Met a Russian teen years ago who offered to teach me important Russian phrases. Besides "spasibo" (thank you), he taught me "gdye yozhik?" (where's the hedgehog?") Guess I'm ready for a trip to Moscow.
