Year of the Hedgehog?

I must admit that I thought that hedgehogs were members of the rodent family, along with the mouse, rat and capybara etc.

But this is not the case. Hedgehogs belong to the Erinacid family, so it is certainly not the year of the hedgehog!

Here is a photo of one taken at the same place as the capybaras.

    Problem is in Japanese it is called “Hari Nezumi”!
    You had better tell my better (worse?) half as all our New Year postcards represent a hedgehog!
