I would think it is more that they can be very inquisitive rather than liking salt. Especially young ones. It may be that it was hoping to find something it could eat there! I imagine it must have felt very strange, but it isn’t something that I, personally, would encourage. I think it is better for hedgehogs if they maintain a healthy respect for humans. We are predators, after all and too much familiarity with one predator could make them less wary of others. Having said that I appreciate if one suddenly came up to you like that, you may not have wanted to scare it by moving. I’m glad, at least that it only licked and didn’t bite!
