Prepare yourself for another giant dose of Japanese adorableness. Meet Marutaro, an African pygmy hedgehog who lives in Japan with his hedgehog wife (Okomesan) and their hedgehog daughter (Kinoko).

Thanks to his absolute adorableness and charm, as well as his owner’s love for taking pictures of him behind paper faces and in front of all sorts of chalkboard scenes, Marutaro has become an internet sensation on Japanese twitter. His Twitter page is basically an endless stream of cute pictures that maybe actually make you squeal with delight. Here are a few of my favorites: 

Hedgehog with a mustache.

Rock star hedgehog.

And... ferocious lion hedgehog.
