This is no ordinary hedgehog. The bestiary (book of beasts) this little guy inhabits describes the imaginative way this hedgehog gathers fruits. He spears grapes with his spikes and rolls through the vine, collecting more and more as he goes. Moral of the story? Care for your spiritual truths, or the devil may carry them off.
