    There so many things you can make with the quills from the hedgehog like a chest plate that has a built in enchantment like how the turtle helmet is but give it thorns you can make a new weapon like a blow dart or a spiked stick

    It would be nice if you could tame the hadgehog with some insect and it was going with you like dogs, cats and parrots, and if they would see a monster they would do the hedgehog thing ( sorry idk how to say that in English) to protect themselves and player from getting hurt

    I have a pet hedgehog, so i know that young hedgehogs change spikes, so i would like this feature for hedgehogs to be like turtles= babies grow up and drop their old shell Hedgehogs would grow up and drop some spikes
    They would take naps during day and be active at night searching for food almost like foxes
    If u wanted to tame a hedgehog you must wait holding worm/insect till the hedgehog unrolls from scared hedgehog position and go to you similar to ocelots
    For hedgehog food i would add worms/insects mobs to dirt, and they hesgehogs would hunt them and eat them with animation of them digging into the dirt
    Also, if some mobs touch hedgehog it will scare them away and the spikes will do 1 heart demage
    I would like reference to sonic that if you name your hedgehog sonic it will be much faster

    Еж мог бы отоковать если вы не него наступит. И он мог остовлять на иголка предметы и носить а свою нору. Например где-то умер скелет (от жары) и ёж насадил бы на иголки предметы и прятал их в свою норку. В норе могли быть дети. А также ёжики ели грибы ведь грибы используют редко. Он был забрал 2 hp за один удар. простите что на русском.
    Удачного дня!

    Their spikes can be used to craft arrows, or they can act like a silverfish, but without poison

    Needles of hedgehogs can replace arrows or make a dart, which, when hit by any ESSENCE, will make it impossible to walk.

    Could be an equivalent like the pufferfish, a mob you should not get too close or hit the mob as it will use its needles like Thorns. Maybe somehow by giving the hedgehog food, it can drop some of its needles and lets say if you have 6 of them you can then make Thorns as an armor upgrade rather than an enchantment. 

    For example the new Netherite armor has some bonus knockback points without any enchantment on. So how about you can have this bonus armor feature of Thorns on the armor of your choosing without it being as an enchantment on it (or double it to get a Thorns level 3 or 4 which only is possible this way)

    Another idea: you can nametag them for it no not despawn and let them roam around your base. That why it acts as a pasive moving cherrybush that damages mobs if they walk into it, but they wont attack the hedgehog as theu are passive.

    Just some random ideas to make more of it than just a new mob but boy I would love to have hedgehogs around my base just like IRL sometimes seeing them in my garden :)

    I think you should be able to tame them.

    I think you should also be able to shear them. They will drop their quills and can't hurt the player or mobs anymore. To do this, you need the hedgehog to trust you. To get them to trust you, simply breed them(with spider eye), and the baby will not run away from you. You can now shear the baby. 

    After 5 Minecraft days, the quills will grow back, and you will have to shear them again so that they can't hurt you.

    I agree i think hedgehogs could ne useful in many different ways one reason is
    If you tame them they could attack other mobs for you what they would do is when a hostile mob comes close they will shoot out there spikes out at them dealing about 4 hearts.
    2. They can hunt for you if you stand them up you could give them a item and they will go hunting for that item so if you gave them diamonds they would dig until they have found one but if you want them to stop looking you would have to sit them and after you sit them they would drop the item that you gave them and it would take longer if it was a rare item than a easy item like dirt.

    Maybe if you named them sonic, their speed would significantly increase

    I think that the hedgehogs needs to droop hedgehog spines, which can be used for some new potions, like resistance to step in them or something.

    I have a hedgehog named Benny and i would absolutely love them to be added to minecraft also maybe if we could tame them like add meal worms (what they eat) and you could tame them. Also Foxes in real life they eat hedgehogs :( so maybe like bunny's baby turtles and chickens hedgehogs could be added but usually the hedgehog will poke the fox for protection

    Hi I think you should add snails with hedgehogs which will slowly eat your crops making them smaller until they are gone and the only way to get rid of them is to befriend a hedgehog with a snailshell and lead him to your crops so he can eat the snails (he will then follow you for a short period of time and the more you feed him the more he'll trust you till he permanently sticks by your side)

    Maybe Hedgehogs would drop thorns. Thorns can be used to craft Ground Spikes. 

    The crafting recipe would look like this: 

    E    E    E

    T    T    T

    W   W   W

    E = Empty, T = Thorns, W = Any kind of wood planks. 

    Anything that walks on Ground Spikes would get 2 health point off every second. 

    Ground Spikes could be joined with a slime ball to make Slimy Ground Spikes. They would do the same work as normal Ground Spikes, but would slow the mob' s walking speed to the same speed as the same mob walking on soul sand. That would give Hedgehogs a use.

    If this gets added (which I hope it does), it'd probably be 3 days maximum until someone makes a texture pack that turns the hedgehog into Sonic.

    @WearingGolf231  That's a great idea of yours,but what if could these darts be poisonous,and being able to craft these poisonous darts,just by combing them with a poisonous potato,carrot or with a potion.

    They should be defensive mobs, where if you get too close they get into a ball. They could be like o elotes where you hold out sweet berries and fun their trust and game them for pets. They could eat fruits and veggies, like real life, and when killed they drop quills
