The video below, shot in Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand, shows something not many people have seen — I sure haven’t! The couple filming caught something truly spectacular happening with their pet hedgehog.
The little creature was giving birth on camera!
The video below begins with the hedgehog lying with her spiny back on a white blanket.
You can instantly see a purple, orb-like “blob” protruding from her stomach. In reality, it’s actually the tiny baby’s head!
The couple filming decided they’d try to help in the only way they knew how: by moaning and yelling, perhaps in the same way a human would while going through labor. At certain points in the video, the mom-to-be hedgehog seems to spread her arms out and push harder right when the couple yells the loudest. Sometimes all you need is that moral support to get you through it!
Finally, the tiny baby hedgehog popped right out, and Mom was quick to hold him close to her.
The hedgehog went on to have a litter of five babies!
Check out the birth in the video below, and please SHARE it on Facebook!
