For an animal that has developed such a bad reputation over the years, I for one could not be happier that it has its very own day to celebrate!
These slithery reptiles are one of the oldest mycological creatures on the planet and still continue to astound and amaze us, I can give several reasons why they are I personally of my favorite animals.
It’s no secret today that our beloved hedgehogs in the UK are drastically declining in numbers due to habitat destruction, parasites and crossing roads.
These gorgeous nocturnal animals have shown to be in rapid decline. Scientist at Nottingham University has developed a genius and accurate method to study the diversity of these spiky characters by placing inkpads in their underground tunnels. Their paw prints have shown that they are now only active on 39% of their protected sites and falling 3 to 5% each year; these results stunned Nottingham University as it was much lower than anticipated.
