Sometimes, you’ve just got to move away from the “whentality,” and focus on the now. Yes, there’s a billion things you’ve got to get done and when you’re going to accomplish that is still buzzing around in your head, but it’s time to be in the moment. Enjoy life.

So, put down the smartphone and take it from an eight ounce African Pygmy hedgehog: Biddy. Just live in the moment.

Biddy the hedgehog has had many adventures and, since June 2013, has been documenting his journeys on Instagram. With the help of his pet parents, Toni DeWeese and Tom Unterseher, this little guy has traveled near and far.

He’s quite the photogenic hedgehog and people couldn’t resist. (I mean, could you? He’s just so darn cute!) Within a span of three days last year, Biddy garnered 17,000 followers from a fan base of 280. Almost a year after Biddy showcased his travels, the hedgehog now has 372,960 followers to date!

I’m on top of the world…err…or rock.

Do I have to wear the sobrero?! Hmph.

This is definitely more my style.

Football’s my favorite pastime.

Picking up fan mail!

Ah…it’s just too early. Five more minutes of sleep, please.

My third birthday! Yay!

You’re doing this now?! Really?!

I’m radiant.

Someone painted me. I’m flattered.

Why isn’t this thing moving?!

Hey…who turned out the lights?

Three words, I…hate…showers.

Do you wanna be a snowman?

My favorite thing to do.

You know it…I’m doing it Gangnam-style!

I’ve become quite the star.

I love me too.
