The 17 species of hedgehog live in Europe, Asia, Africa and they were even introduced in New Zealand. Mating can be precarious when you are prickly so the male needs to be certain the female is interested. The male circles the female huffing and snorting and can even make bird-like calls. Very few courting advances actually result in a bout of mating.
