Res­cued: Tiny hedge­hog found by road­side finds com­fort with soft toy

The Scotsman - - Around Scotland -

A three-week-old hedge­hog cud­dles up to an adult size hedge­hog soft toy at Hes­sil­head Wildlife Cen­tre, Beith.

The lit­tle one weighs only 160g and needs to reach 700g be­fore be­ing re­leased back into the wild. The hedge­hog was among one of two res­cued from the road­side.

The tiny hedge­hogs which were brought in are nick­named ‘au­tumn ju­ve­niles’ due to the birth late in the sea­son.
