Israeli zookeepers have put an adorable but overweight hedgehog on a diet to enable him to defend himself again in the wild.

Sherman, an adorable hedgehog, was rescued off the streets and taken to the Ramat Gan Safari for care.

He’s one of the cutest hedgehogs ever, but he’s so overweight that it’s dangerous.

Until he loses enough weight to regain his ability to defend himself out in the wild, he remains in the safari.

You many wonder how Sherman managed to gain so much weight.

Watch this video, find out how, and fall in love with the chubby little hedgehog!
