Kind of hard to take pictures without using the flash extensively in the garden in the middle of the night but I’ve got some hedgehogs and hoglets about. Big fan of how they plod about chuntering to themselves.

Seen a lot of terrapins recently. Didn’t realise one was balancing on the other when I took the picture!

I don’t have much hedgehog experiance. Is it normal for them to wander within a metre or two of you? They seem to have a set pattern they plod along every night and if I’m sat outside they don’t really notice or care and just trundle past.

I haven’t had them voluntarily come that close but I have found them in the garden in the past and they didn’t seem all that arsed about my presence. Possibly they aren’t too fussed because they know they’re well protected, so they don’t need to be as skittish as other small animals?

Thinking about it, I don’t think I can remember ever seeing one run away, even though they can go faster than you’d think.

I know that if you see one out and about in the daytime, that’s a sign that they’re unwell, however.
