Definitely a natural blonde, although I didn’t get a proper look at its face. It was high up on a shelf and if I had asked the proprietor to fetch it down, I would have felt obliged to purchase the poor thing. Having only just managed to persuade my reluctant shopper of a husband to set foot through the door, I thought better of it. I really could kick myself for not taking a photo; I still haven’t got used to the fact that phones have cameras on them these days…or is it that cameras have phones attached to them! Anyway, from what I could see, it was a small hedgehog compared to our motley bunch and it had very short honey coloured spines and skin.
It’s a sad thought, but if the latest Mammal Society estimated figures of 522,000 are correct, down 66% from a similar hedgehog survey in 1995, I can’t help thinking that the only hedgehogs that future generations will see are those in zoos or those pickled in formaldehyde! 🙁
