This is the adorable moment a tiny hedgehog lies on its belly and stretches out its little legs to make a ‘yoga’ pose.

In the short clip, thought to have been recorded in Japan, the animal lies down to prepare for the stretch before it looks up at the camera and shakes a little.

The hedgehog then puts its arms and legs to the side and sticks its tongue out, clearly enjoying the move.

After taking a second to recover the hedgehog starts sniffing towards the camera and looking around its cage. 

Hedgehogs usually curl up into a ball to protect themselves from danger or when they’re spooked, however this animal seems more than happy to stretch out. 

Thousands of people have commented on the short clip online and some have even compared the cute hedgehog to a yoga instructor.
