Is that a hedgehog? He looks mean. A most unusual heraldic charge, if
one indeed considers it heraldic...

From Papworth's - "Sir Simon Eyre: Gules, a hedgehog salient (proper)
collared and chained argent."
Porcupines and hedgehogs are occasionally encountered, but the more
common description is "urchin", which heraldically covers both.
