Thesaurus Thursday: "Erinaceous."

Another Thursday, another word.  The word of the day is "erinaceous," an adjective meaning of, pertaining to, or resembling a hedgehog.

If somebody thinks they're a hedgehog, presumably you just give 'em a mirror and a few pictures of hedgehogs and tell them to sort it out for themselves.
-Douglas Adams

Moles are somewhat erinaceous in shape despite not having spines and are actually distant relatives of the hedgehog.
