Is this not the most gorgeous creature? Cuddly no, but very cute!
The hedgehogs are everywhere, dosily ambling about stuffed with slugs and snails. They have no predators on the island (ie foxes) so they thrive. Some think they’re a bain. I love them.
My son Ruben was doing work experience at the local vet during the summer and someone brought in a pet hedgehog with a growth on its leg. It was hugely overweight. Apparently she had fed her previous hedgehog on marshmallows…what!!
