Hedgehog

See also: Hedgehog in Pictorial Dictionary of Heraldry.

A small beast covered with spines. Medieval legend held that hedgehogs would creep into vineyards at night, shake grapes loose, then roll about to impale the fallen fruit before carrying their bounty home for their offspring.

No default posture. No proper coloration.
