I was out one nighttime when I found myself stuck in garden netting. It was scary! But luckily, some nice people rescued me and took me to Prickly Pigs Hedgehog Rescue. There, they gently freed me from the netting and fixed up my scratches. They gave me yummy snacks and a comfy place to stay. After a while, I was all better! With a big thank you to my rescuers, I went back to the garden, happy and free. No more netting for me!

There are 17 different species of hedgehogs that are found in Europe, Africa and Asia. In the UK we only have the one species, the European Hedgehog (Erinaceus europaeus)
