Tingo the hedgehog is almost famous.

The beloved pet has more than 2,000 Instagram followers. He frequents local ice cream shops, shopping centers and parks. He’s been spotted everywhere from Trinity Groves to Deep Ellum.

Michelle Mejia is the mastermind behind Tingo’s recent celebrity status. The 21-year-old student at the Art Institute of Dallas created the hedgehog’s Insta account after her friends pointed out how photogenic he is.

GuideLive caught up with Tingo and Mejia to learn all about his (sort of) high-profile life. You can read about him here.
