Four baby hedgehogs, no older than 24 hours, held in hand at the Gower Bird Hospital, South Wales, UK. Gower Bird Hospital cares for injured and orphaned birds and small mammals until they're ready to be returned to the wild.
My dad was career military and we lived in Germany twice. The second time we had two pet hedgehogs - Henry and Henrietta. They are the sweetest little animals. Kinda like a warm little pinecone. This picture brought back those memories.
