He is adorable. I am not familiar with an urchin as a mammal. Off to wikipeida...

We have urchins as well - except that they are not land terrestrial creatures but rather ocean dwelling variety called Ina and Vana - the Ina is nonpoisonous and in some places eaten as a delicasy with short nonsharp spines and then there is the vana - poisonous with long sharp spines but amazingly beautiful with flourescent colors. You urchin is cute =)

I worked with a guy who had something like this as a pet, but he called it a Hedgehog. I wonder if they are the same thing....
