Home Forums Hedgehog signs and sightings What are the marks? Reply To: What are the marks?


Could it be self anointing? I had a large hedgehog appear with a white stripe which the next night was slightly different mark. Seems a common question on a gardening forum I am on also. People reporting of hedgehogs with whiteish patches or marks. I did a bit of googling and that seemed a plausible suggestion 🙂
