This video says about itself:
Ceramic Hedgehog Jar
From the Myers Eton College Collection of Egyptian Antiquities.
From Ancient Egypt Magazine, Volume 7 issue 1 August/September 2006:
Magda van Ryneveld explains why the humble hedgehog features so often in ancient Egyptian art.
Unfortunately, the complete article is not online.
So I don’t know whether the article mentioned the at least two species of hedgehog occurring in ancient Egypt, both different from the European species: long-eared hedgehog Hemiechinus auritus, and Paraechinus aethiopicus.
