Adorable Hedgehog Humorously Disguised with Illustrated Masks

marutaro hedgehog Marutaro is an adorable pygmy hedgehog with some serious Internet fame. The Japan-based celebrity has over 47,000 followers on Twitter, and more fans around the web. It's not hard to see why – just look at that face! Marutaro enjoys getting his picture taken, and he is patient enough to pose with the silly, illustrated masks that his owners make for him. Sometimes he's disguised with a toothy grin and other times it's a trimmed goatee. Whatever it is, he always wears it well.

Costumes aren't the only thing he's known for. Additionally, Marutaro has a calendar that showcases a cute picture everyday, and Vine videos that feature him lounging in a rice bowl, playing with a soccer ball, and running face-first into a cup. We're looking forward to seeing more delightful antics from this curious little hedgehog.

These adorable photos show Maruaro, the pygmy hedgehog, posing with silly, illustrated masks.
