PART EIGHTEEN – HEDGEHOGS

IMG_4694

Over the past week, I have had my trail cameras out in the front garden in the hope to capture our local vixen or even a badger. However, the cameras picked up something out of the ordinary, a hedgehog!

The last time we saw a hedgehog in our garden was back in 2016, which can be seen here: https://appletonwildlifediary.wordpress.com/2016/07/05/hedgehog/

The timing of this hedgehogs appearance couldn’t be timed better as it’s Hedgehog awareness week

  • Hedgehogs are lactose intolerant
  • They have over 5000 spikes
  • Hedghogs can live for up to 10 years but the average life spam is 3 years
  • A group is called an array
  • Hedgehogs can travel up to 2 miles each night
  • They typically have 5 young, also known as hoglets
