Cute pets always make camping better. That’s why we’ve dedicated a whole page to our dogs on The Dyrt. But this hedgehog might be the cutest camping pet we’ve seen yet. (No offense to your dogs… we love them, too.)

A hedgehog went camping and our hearts exploded

Meet Azuki. He’s a very cute hedgehog from Japan who enjoys apples, belly rubs, and very tiny hats. And he recently gave camping a try.

You can keep up with Azuki’s adventures on Instagram, and if you have your own camping cuteness to share, tag @TheDyrt! We love to hear about your camping adventures through reviews and photos on our site, too.


The Dyrt is the fastest growing camping app on web and mobile, with new features being rolled out regularly. If you love the outdoors, discovering ideal spots to pitch your tent, and being part of a rich and active community, then join us.
