Happy Hedgehog Day! The ancient Romans would watch hedgehogs on Feb. 2 so see if they spotted their shadow (by moonlight). In America the holiday was reinvented with a hibernating animal native to the continent.
When we tested Punxsutawney Pricklepants using her new bucket wheel (a scientifically valid cave substitute) she won in the Christmas contest, she did not react to her shadow. It might be the battle towers and mayhem of battle were a distraction, though.
