Re: Do Russians like "ежик"

the proper word is ёжик but search engines treat the letters ё and е the same and people have a trend to write it this way as well.
The animal is know to live in cottage areas, and forests all around Russia, and former USSR countries.
Here in Canada, Raccoons and squirrels replace the ёжик, they are just everywhere as long as there are tree's around.

Thanks for your help on this, seems like a very popular small animal in and around Russia. Thanks for the heads-up on the ё.

We have squirrels and Raccoons here in California, and many varieties of field mice (to keep the house cats and hawks happy).

Re: Do Russians like "ежик"

Yes, it is popular to keep as a pet. Also popular in cartoons. Although ё is correct, it is located on an odd place on the keyboard and many people don't type it in. I don't see a lot of commercial value in this one though. Its more of a brandable.

They are popular because they are cute.

Have to agree with that, and also branding...

Here are some interesting ежик facts in English from Wiki:

A hedgehog is any of the spiny mammals of the subfamily Erinaceinae and the order Erinaceomorpha. There are 17 species of hedgehog in five genera, found through parts of Europe, Asia, Africa, and New Zealand. There are no hedgehogs native to Australia, and no living species native to North America.

The purchase of domesticated hedgehogs has seen a considerable increase in the last few years, owing to their apparently innocent and playful looks.

Hedgehogs are a powerful form of pest control.

In 2006, McDonald's changed the design of their McFlurry containers to be more hedgehog-friendly.[17] Previously, hedgehogs would get their heads stuck in the container as they tried to lick the remaining food from inside the cup. Then, being unable to get out, they would starve to death. Domesticated hedgehogs display this behavior by getting their head stuck in tubes (commonly, lavatory paper tubes) and walking around with the tube on their head. Hedgehog owners often refer to this as "tubing" and promote the behavior by supplying clean tubes. Most owners are considerate enough, however, to cut the tubes lengthwise so as to prevent the hedgehog from remaining trapped against their will. Curiously though, some will still knowingly get themselves stuck for a few hours.

Hedgehogs are a food source in many cultures. Hedgehogs were eaten in Ancient Egypt, and some recipes of the Late Middle Ages call for hedgehog meat.[19] Hedgehog meat is still acceptable in some societies, and there are folk-remedies that include it as an ingredient.

A method of preparation that has been used since ancient times is to cover a hedgehog with clay and bake it. The hedgehog is then removed and the clay cracked open, taking the spikes of the hedgehog with it.
During the 1980s, "hedgehog-flavour" crisps were introduced in Britain, although the product did not in fact contain any hedgehog.
