Hi Nic,

I’ve just been out putting up a poster outside the local primary school, it’s a shame that they’re now on holiday for two weeks. Great news about your hog friendly neighbour. Believe it or not, I am not great at making conversation with strangers, but I can talk about hedgehogs for hours!

Well, all hell broke loose here on the patio on Saturday night. This was the worst fight by far caught on camera. It was truly shocking and who was at the heart of it – yep you’ve guessed it – the old boy Simba! As I have said before, most hogs when confronted by Simba either run for cover, or roll into a ball and allow themselves to rolled unceremoniously around the patio, but this was different. Simba tried to drag the other hog out of the terracotta hedgehog house and it was having none of it. They locked jaws and violently threw each other around for almost twenty minutes. What makes matters worse, is that I’m not even sure that the other party was a male, but I do know that it wasn’t the ‘gentle giant’. I’m half tempted to put a video together, as an insight into what they really get up to, but I don’t want to shatter their cute and cuddly image! Thankfully there was no blood spilt on the patio, so hopefully they’re both ok.
