Fun Hedgehog facts

Did you know that hedgehogs are masters at disguise? Their colours allow them to camouflage into forest backgrounds making it hard for predators to spot them.

They also love it when things are messy!

The more wild and overgrown the better. Compost heaps, leaf litter, piles of logs and dead vegetation are the perfect hiding spots for a hedgehog home. It is also great habitat for invertebrates they like to feast on!
