Just Call Me Spike!

Hedgehogs have about 5000 spines, and each year they drop out and a replacement grows!  These cute critters actually got their names from their strange foraging habits – rooting through hedges for their favourite food with their pig-like snouts.
If you want to encourage them into your garden, you can build them a home using a crate with an entrance just big enough for them (10cm/4in), and be sure to add some ventilation holes. Cover their new home with felt, or straw and leaves, and leave them some water for something to drink. Good Luck!
