These are some of the litter of 5 babies who came to Spikes and were hand reared last year after their mother died. This is what really brings a smile to our faces as they are now in their release pens prior to going free very soon. The wonderful lady, June who originally found the mother in distress last year has looked after the 5 all winter, feeding them and cleaning them out (no mean feat I can assure you!), and today they were relocated to their release pens. Here they are investigating the grass for the very time in their lives before going back to bed until the night.
June has made a wonderful job of caring for these hedgehogs as they are very fit and healthy and can’t wait to ‘get out there’ and be proper hedgehogs.
Thank you so much for everything June.
