The Hedgehog is a spiny mammal whose body is covered in many sharp protective spikes.

Thaddeus Thurkell, a wizard, once had seven children who turned out to be Squibs. In anger, Thaddeus turned them all into hedgehogs.[1]

A hedgehog is one possible corporeal form of the Patronus Charm.[2]

The Knarl greatly resembles a hedgehog; behaviourally the only difference between the two is that a hedgehog will happily accept a gift of milk, whereas a Knarl will believe it to be an attempt to lure it into a trap.[3]
