Hedgehogs are found all over the world, but there are some exceptions. There are no living species of hedgehog native to the Americas, and none are known to have lived naturally in Australia.

Hedgehogs are banned from Australia - only able to be imported by zoos for display, however we have echidnas which are very similiar in looks, and they are native ONLY to Australia.

Neither are what I would call cuddily CUTE - their spikes are dangerous and I think they have poisonous spurs.......to be handled with great care and at your peril......certainly not for the pet yard.
