|Just loved this picture and wanted to share it.
hedgehogs are in decline and need our help more than ever. Thankfully, there are dedicated rescues all over the country
who are doing just that.
Simply Exotic Hedgehogs are proud to be fundraising for Tamworth Bird & Hedgehog Rescue
and we attend several School Fetes and Functions - if you know of a local school that would be happy to invite us, then please
let us know.
Donut and Pretzel were the first two wildies that I
fostered until they reached the correct weight for release.
order to learn more about our wild hedgehogs, I attended the Hedgehog Basic First Aid, Care and Rehabilitation Course held
at Vale Wildlife Hospital and Rehabilitation Centre.
Meet Pig Pig
Pig Pig arrived late
2017 and was very underweight at 400grams, full of internal parasites and displaying behavioural problems.
took care of the internal parasites but it became clear that he had no vision and was blind.
had reached 650 grams he was released into an enclosed supported garden but he didn't settle and he constantly circled and became
very stressed so he came back to me.
Several adjustments were made to his living quarters, he has a ground level
hutch which he can access freely, a padded sleeping pouch as he didn't settle at all with a nest box and hay, he
also has a box shelter he can use and he navigates happily as he pleases throughout the day and night.
is now 1050 grams and although blind, he is happy and healthy and enjoys his life
