The hedgehog is known for reacting to threats by rolling up into a ball with only its spines pointing outward. Self-protection or effective personal boundaries. Abrasiveness or using negativity to distance oneself from others. Dreaming of this animal can represent:
- Having too much of one of these qualities, or that you could benefit by being less this way
- Not having enough of one of these qualities, or that you could benefit by being more like this
- Someone or something in your real life with whom you associate one of these qualities (an event, situation, threat, etc.)
For more clues, pay attention to what the animal was doing or any particular characteristic that stood out.
