This wee hog will not survive the winter if it does not eat more before it hibernates, put out some dog food or cat food for it (tinned meat) if you can track it to its hibernating place, it must be dry, sheltered and gool, or it will not go sleep!
Yes, I know that, Mike. I was very surprised to see this hedgehog in our lawn yesterday. I grabbed a camera and got some pictures, and later on I went to read a little about the hedgehogs on the Internet. We deliberated for a while to put out some food, but eventually decided to let nature take its course. There are good opportunities to find a place to hibernate under our terrace and partially under the house. I read that they had to weigh at least 750 grams before they could go to sleep. Perhaps this was so big, I do not know, but it was munching something when I saw it, so it has probably found something to eat.
Norske pinnsvin ser nøyaktig ut som et pinnsvin bosatt i Polen :) Utmerket fotografiske arbeid. De beste ønsker fra Białobrzegi (Polen) og ha en fin om kvelden - Adam.
Yes Adam, I guess they do. :-))
But I was very surprised when I saw this little creature in my garden in mid December. They should absolutely be in hibernate at that time of the year. I hope that it made it back to its sheltered nest after this little trip out.
Thanks a lot for visit and kind words. I'm glad you like this photo, and your YS is very appreciated. :-)
Best of wishes,
Takk for omfattende svar til min forrige kommentar. Jeg tror også at denne glade pinnsvin vil leve gjennom vinteren. Med vennlig hilsen - Adam.
Thanks again Adam. :-)
