Every day is Halloween when you're an adorable hedgehog.
Meet Marutaro: He's got a whole lot of spines, even more Twitter followers (45,000 and counting!) and an endless supply of dress-up options.

She may not be on any official best dressed lists, but we'd take style advice from this kangaroo any day.
Boomeroo – who was adopted by Virginia resident Julia Heckathorn at just 3 weeks old – boasts an entire wardrobe of human clothing. Among the duds filling her closet: shirts, sweaters and dresses, all purchased from baby shops.
"When we first got Boomeroo, she was wearing a little shirt, and she's worn clothes ever since," Heckathorn, 28, told the U.K.'s Daily Mail. "She loves her tops, and when I have to take her top off to clean it, she puts her arms out and waits for me to dress her again."
