At first, it was kind of scary to wear a face mask, but necessary to protect ourselves from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Now, face masks are the new normal — even for hedgehogs!

Douglas Co. is keeping Spunky the hedgehog safe with an assortment of three different styles of polka-dotted or tie-dye face masks. Each plush critter in the Spunky Masked Hedgehog assortment is 5 inches tall, features brown fur and a white fluffy belly, and includes a colorful face mask secured over its little hedgey ears.
