Hi everyone,

Yes, those were my first thoughts as well, that it looks like an African pygmy. Perhaps Jens could shed some light on it. I have noticed a lot about hedgehogs in the press recently -which is a good thing- but I do get irritated when they keep using photos of African pypmy’s instead of our native hogs!

As for them coming out in daylight Marion, I was a bit worried about one of ours that turned up a couple of nights ago at 7.00pm, before I had plated up dinner, but she turned up last night around 8.00pm with a fellow diner and all seems well. 🙂
