Shaymin or Erinaceus herbaceous is the only species in the hedgehog family. Complications arise because Shaymin's Land Forme looks like a hedgehog while Sky Forme looks like a small dog with long ears. Canids and hedgehogs are in the superorder Laurasiatheria. Genetic testing is needed to properly class Shaymin in either Erinaceidae or Canidae.
