Baby Hedgehog

Personally I can’t stand the vermin, but this is cute. Though I’m not sure how the mother hedgehog feels giving birth to that!

    I always thought that hedgehogs abandoned their young if they were handled or the nest disturbed. Not sure at what age though. 

    Whale – we love hedgehogs in our garden – they keep the snails and grubs away from our vegetables.  It is a relationship that works out well for the hedgehogs and for us.

         That is true I guess. They are pretty much immune to our two Maremmas.

        Wendyl Nissan would have you believe that terriers are more vermin-like than hedgehogs.

        Or a Jack Russell whose real name should be Ricocheting Bullet! Chews just about anything so sure he would give the hedgehog a go!

    My choc lab (she) loves to play with them…which usually involves a human rescue for all parties sakes. Mind you, she has prefers more mobile game and recently brought home a rabbit off the farm and a large water rat from one of the ponds.

    Yeah our black lab likes barking like a high pitched school girl at hedgehogs and then carries them around in his mouth. I try to discourage it as wouldn’t take much to get an infection from one of the quills.

    No such thing as a “breach birth” in hedgehogs. No-one lives to tell the tail ;-) 
    A friend had a Ridgeback that would gently carry them round in his mouth for ages.

    What’s the difference between a Liarbore parliamentary limousine and a hedgehog?

    The hedgehog has the pricks on the outside, the limousine on the inside.
