Before we started celebrating Groundhog Day here in the U.S., “Hedgehog Day” was celebrated throughout Europe.  Today, at the Oregon Zoo, Jabari, the African pygmy hedgehog was pulled from his quiet box to determine if the duration of winter.  Zoo Director Kim Smith holds the little hedgehog while local grade school kids take turns petting his fuzzy back. She says Jabari predicted a short winter, because he did not see his shadow. Puxatawny Phil, on the other hand, projected a longer winter. Smith says Jabari has the better record for accuracy.  Watch the video on the Oregon Zoo's “You Tube” channel.
