Meet Huff, a 3-year-old rescue African Pygmy hedgehog from Utah whose adorable fangs have earned him a following of 12k people on Instagram. Otherwise known as Sir Hodge Huffington the Cricket Slayer, the cutie-pie was adopted by student Carolyn Parker after his previous owner treated him badly.
“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.”
