His full name is Sir Hodge Huffington the Cricket Slayer, but people call him Huff for short.

The cutie-pie was adopted by student Carolyn Parker after his previous owner treated him badly.

His owner Carolyn said most hedgehogs have small sharp teeth but these are usually rarely seen unless the animals are eating or in a particularly odd mood.

She started taking photographs of Huff to help her deal with seasonal depression.

Carolyn always tries to snap Huff pulling funny faces but claims this can take time – and she often has to bribe him with worms.

She said that there has been an “overwhelming amount of excitement and love” for Huff. “People love his little fangs or smiling face,” she said.
