Well, fellow RVers, it’s about time for your daily dose of cute. And what could be cuter than a hedgehog going camping? Nothing…except for a hedgehog going camping with real mini camping gear (sponsored by Coleman Japan, of course).
Azuki the hedgehog has 405,000 followers on Instagram (here’s his account). Let me reiterate here: a hedgehog (!!) has 405,000 followers. OK…I’ll just be over here…fainting. Sadly, Azuki died in January, leaving his daughter, Monaka, to take over his account. She’s doing a pretty good, er, pretty cute, job.
The photos are pretty impressive. I mean…here’s Azuki riding a magic carpet like he’s Aladdin, for Pete’s sake! Have you ever been to Antelope Canyon in Arizona? Well, Azuki has too (and he loved it). Oh, and he also loves ice cream…well, actually he loves pretending like he’s ice cream…
OK, anyway, Azuki left the comforts of his own tiny home (see, he’s just like you!) to go camping. Here’s what that looked like:
First, Azuki set up his tent.
Setting up a tent is hard, especially for a little hedgehog. He decided to throw his kayak in the water and take a dip to cool off.
Kayaking is hard work for Azuki, who is still working on his upper body strength. Time for lunch!
Now that he fueled himself up, it’s time to get the fire going…
and the grill too, of course.
Mmm, nothing like grilled green beans and crickets! Tasty!
Ooooooh yeah. Time to sit back, relax and enjoy that food, baby.
Well, if that’s not one of the darned cutest things you’ve ever seen, something is wrong with you. Kidding, but you have to admit that melted your heart at least a little bit, right? If you want to support Azuki and his dad, you can buy their book on Amazon (because what hedgehog wouldn’t have a book?) here. And make sure you spend some time scrolling through his Instagram account here.
