A hedgehog may be a familiar sight in any European garden but in Ancient Egypt, with its varied ecosystems and its diverse flora and fauna, hedgehogs were not only a familiar sight but one that was full of symbolism and hidden meaning for the one who happened to see one. Animals were an important part of their everyday life and early depictions of hedgehogs can be found as early as the Predynastic Era. Small engravings, statues and even painted artwork depict hedgehogs and help us understand the way Ancient Egyptians lived by learning what held special meaning for them.
While hedgehogs were seen as protectors in Ancient Egypt because of their ability to roll up into a ball as a means to protect themselves, our own hedgehog is just as famous but for an altogether different reason. Last winter, while hibernating, he accidentally rubbed his snout on some strange root and come spring everyone kept calling him Rudolph. Although the reddish tint went away in a few days the name Rudolph stuck.
