Mom, Glitter Toaster Strudel, gave birth to seven lesser Madagascar tenrec hedgehogs at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park.
The babies remain backstage at Rafiki’s Planet Watch spending time with mom and dad!
#DidYouKnow: The sex of tenrec hedgehogs is unknown until they are around two months old? To help identify them, their care team uses a small dab of animal-safe paint on each of their backs.
Disney’s Animal Kingdom recently announced the birth of Beni the baby okapi, too.
