The spiky wee lad goes by the name of Huff (his full name is Sir Hodge Huffington the Cricket Slayer), and he has his own Instagram account that is bringing cuteness overload to animal lovers everywhere.

But it's not just his tiny size that sets this three-year-old African Pgymy hedgehog apart from the others, the little critter also sports a pair of 'vampire teeth'.

Huff's owner, Utah resident Carolyn Parker, originally took the pint-sized hedgehog in as a rescue pet.

While suffering from seasonal depression, Parker started taking photos of Huff as a fun way to cheer herself up.

"Living in Utah [where the days are short and cold during winter], seasonal depression is something a lot of people deal with - including myself, she told Buzzfeed. "I started the Instagram account to share something that made me happy."

Huff's Instagram account has over 15,000 followers, and the photos, including pics of the wee hedgehog in a coffee cup, and posing with sunglasses, attract hundreds of likes.

Parker says all hedgehogs have sharp little teeth, although Huff's appear to be more pronounced than usual.

"I try to get pictures that show that off as a cute feature," she says.

Everybody say "awww."
