Mighty Little Hedgehog Short African Story

Mighty Little Hedgehog Short African Story

Mighty Little Hedgehog Short African Story

Small things are good. In this African short story, the big animals of the forest had to admit the little things are the biggest things and definitely the best things.

Mighty Little Hedgehog Short African Story

A long time ago the sun did not shine, so it was always night. In the forest, there stood a tree taller than any other did and so it was that so long as this tree stood there could be no day.

Therefore, all the animals of the forest conspired to pull it down.

The elephant, confident in his strength, first tried; but tried in vain.

After him, the lion, leopard and many other animals worked hard, but all to no purpose; none could pull it down or root it up.

At last, when all the others had despaired of trying to cut down the tree, a little hedgehog came forward and told them that she was stronger than they all were, and would soon prove it by felling the tree.

So off she ran, but soon returned with a small but sharp hatchet, with which she cut away till the tree fell, and as it fell the sun rose for the first time.

African hedgehog facts 

The four-toed African hedgehogs are meat eaters found in Central Africa, East Africa, and West Africa Grassland, hedgerows, woodland, and meadows. Most hedgehogs have between 5000 and 7000 quills that are everywhere except on their face, legs, and tummies. By curling into a tight ball and tucking in their heads, tail, and legs, they protect vulnerable parts of their body. They also depend on their sense of hearing and smell because they have very poor eyesight.
