Taking a trip to the country can be a big relief for those who live in the city.
Any of us who have bigger animals like pets may even take them on vacation with us. Still, it can be difficult to bring your pets with you camping for a number of reasons. Maybe they’ll get lost, maybe they’ll run away or maybe the change of scenery will just be too much for them to handle. Still, none of those things apply to one very special animal.
In a story out of Japan, one adorable hedgehog named Azuki truly loves camping.
For those who haven’t heard of him, Azuki is an Insta-famous animal with more than 190k followers.
If you browse the photos on his Instagram, it’s not hard to see why he has inspired such a cult following. Still, his owners decided to stage a very elaborate camping set up for him which has truly broken the internet.
With that in mind, here are some of the best pictures of Azuki the camping hedgehog.
Let’s face it: camping is easier when you have a top-of-the-line tent.
No camping trip would be complete without a picnic by the river, either.
Still, camping isn’t all fun and games—first you have to gather some wood to make a campfire.
Finding some time to man the grill is also a very important component of a successful camping trip.
For those that are feeling really ambitious, breaking out the kayak can also spice things up a bit.
At the end of it all, it pays to simply kick back and relax after a long day of outdoor activities.
Although these escapes from reality are necessary every once in a while, even Azuki the hedgehog has to go back to the city eventually.
Even if it was all just a photoshoot, Azuki is capturing the hearts and minds of thousands of people around the world.
Although animal Instagram accounts are nothing new, there’s something special and hilarious about the amount of effort this one put into these photos. There’s no denying that Azuki is an adorable little guy. As it turns out, hedgehogs can be just as adorable and adventurous as dog. This isn’t the first time Azuki has made a splash on the internet and it probably won’t be the last.
Consider us engaged—we’re all in for more hedgehog adventures in the future.
