Hedgehogs are one of our most popular nocturnal mammal in the UK.They are often seen scurrying around hedgerows looking for food. They are brown in colour and can grow upto 9" long. They are normally around 1-2Kg in autumn when they feed and get ready for hibernation.
Mainly found in hedgerows, fields and gardens under leaves or logs.

They are insectivore and various invertebrates from beetles, millipedes and worms to slugs and snails. They are also prone to dog food too and need water. Do not feed them milk.
