Cute pets always make camping better. That’s why we’ve dedicated a whole page to our dogs on The Dyrt. But this hedgehog might be the cutest camping pet we’ve seen yet. (No offense to your dogs… we love them, too.)

A hedgehog went camping and our hearts exploded

Meet Azuki. He’s a very cute hedgehog from Japan who enjoys apples, belly rubs, and very tiny hats. And he recently gave camping a try.

You can keep up with Azuki’s adventures on Instagram, and if you have your own camping cuteness to share, tag @TheDyrt! We love to hear about your camping adventures through reviews and photos on our site, too.
