One of the mysteries of the English language finally explained.
Is there a word for a baby hedgehog?

However, by the early 1990s the word hoglet (or sometimes hedgehoglet) had been introduced, and this word seems to have been in general use among those people with an interest in hedgehogs since at least the mid-1990s.
