The Most Popular Hedgehog On Instagram Is Here

June 3, 2014: Biddy the Hedgehog has already explored more of the world than most humans do in a lifetime.

The world is full of wonderful sights and sceneries, but unfortunately, not everyone can afford to see them due to the shackles that modern urban life puts on us. There are no such worries in the life of an Oregon-based hedgehog named Biddy, though, and he is taking full advantage of it.

Living life to the fullest, Biddy travels every week with his owners Toni DeWeese and Tom Unterseher to discover new mountains, waterfalls, deserts and other picturesque sites.

Each and every one of his excursions is photographed and shared on Instagram, a practice that has earned him more than 382,000 followers on the picture-sharing site. He is arguably the most famous mammal on social media right now.

Check out some of Biddy the Hedgehog's most memorable photos:

When DeWeese started posting Biddy's images on Instagram, she had no idea that he'd become so famous in such short time. As a result, they now have to take him out more regularly than before so his fans remain satisfied.

We thought we’d get, like, 500 followers,” DeWeese told the Oregonian. “We did go out a lot before, but now we feel like we have to every week because everyone’s expecting an adventure.”
