The Indian hedgehog is a species of hedgehog native to India and Pakistan. It mainly lives in sandy desert areas but can be found in other environments.
Indian Hedgehog has a very diverse diet consuming insects, frogs, toads, bird eggs, snakes, and scorpions. When danger presents itself, the Indian Hedgehog rolls up into a ball. The upper side of the body has spines to protect from predators.
