8. The Hedgehog

We usually know the hedgehog as an inanimate prickly ball, but when unalarmed and unafraid the hedgehog, or urchin, is a sleek, eager active animal as will be seen in the picture. Hedgehogs are fond of worms and grubs in general. They also eat carrion. There is nothing a garden urchin appreciates more than a saucer of bread and milk. Hedgehogs are creatures of the night and most of their activities are undertaken under cover of darkness.
