Erinaceus europaeus aka European Hedgehog

I couldn't believe myself, when last night my aunt called me to I come fast with any camera, to see something. I was really wondering what it was...and when I saw what it was I could not even believe. It was a baby hedgehog there in my house backyard. It was so cute, and this was the first time I ever touched and ever seen a hedgehog live, without being dead. I mad sure he was fine, so I fed him with an apple from the little orchard my grandmother has near my house, and he liked it. I payed attention to make sure he wouldn't go to somewhere dangerous, and then there he went to his life, to somewhere else that we (I) will never know.
I wish I could stay with it, but this is a wild specie, and in my country it is ILLEGAL have this animals as pet. unless it is a pet specie, which is very similar to this one.
Isn't it a cutie??? he is so cute, so little, so ...harmless... :)

Lynda I like hedghogs - it was the 1st wild animal I ver saw when I was about 2 or 3 and lived under my garden shed. I used to feed it bread and milk but found out when I grew up that you shouldn't give them that but cat food instead!

mikro Glad you let him go Ricky. I have to explain to my children when they catch turtles and frogs and lizards that they can keep them to study them for a day or two but afterward they must let them go. I ask if they would like to be kept prisoner in a jar or cage and they understand.
