These 3 baby hedgehogs were found in Harlow by Michelle. 2 were found on the first day and the 3rd was found about 4 days later. They were all dehydrated and had fly eggs and tiny maggots just hatching out

After hard work by Pat who does a lot of rearing of babies for us, they are thriving


Here are a few pictures of them and a couple of videos

Please note: Hedgehogs are nocturnal animals and healthy hedgehogs should never be seen out in daylight. These photos are staged photos under supervision. If you ever see baby hedgehogs out in daylight, they need urgent help and should immediately be picked up and taken to a rescue centre for help

My children and I have been anxious to find out how they are all doing – I have been getting regular updates from Derek, and they are clearly thriving! We all shed a few tears the evening we found out one of the four babies had to be put down… Read more »

Today Quillow and Quillmish the older two finally graduated to eating out of a bigger bowl. 🙂 They thought it was novel and then after a few drinks of their formula and some of water. A scratching fest insued, before heading off to bed for a nap. They are true hedgies now and trashing their cage. 🙂
