Hedgehog (קִפֹּד, qippod). It is unclear whether this Hebrew term in the Prophets refers to the hedgehog—a spiny, insect-eating mammal—or a species of bird, such as an owl or bittern (Isa 14:23; 34:11, 15; Zeph 2:14). Various English translations differ, and some also translate the term as “porcupine.”
