Hogs from Other Blogs - Tenrec Hedgehogs

Spike and Mike the Tenrecs
These little guys look like hedgehogs but actually aren't. They are Lesser Hedgehog Tenrecs! These little guys are living at the Bronx Zoo.
"While they might look like hedgehogs, and even have hedgehog in their name, they are actually a totally different family of mammals. Tenrec species come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, with some looking like hedgehogs, some like mice, and some even like otters!"
In profile they look more like moles
