The Indian Hedgehog (Paraechinus micropus) is a species of hedgehogs native to India and Pakistan. The Indian Hedgehog is known for its masked face, somewhat similar to a raccoon. It tends to live on plains and in bushy mountainous areas near water.

The Indian Hedgehog is relatively small (~200-350 grams, ~15 centimetres) and quite fast, although not as fast as the Long-eared Hedgehog. It also has a more diverse diet with additional food source of frogs, toads, snakes and scorpions. Although it is capable of digging dens, it is highly unlikely to do so. Although the Indian Hedgehog doesn't hibernate, it is still capable of slowing down its metabolism when food is scarce.
