Take a long and careful look at this image of Nelson,rescued in Norfolk, England. Then take a guess at what kind of animal this pet could possibly be?
Nelson was found in Norfolk, England. He was taken to the Foxy Lodge Wildlife Rescue where Volunteers look after him. They give him a regular massage with almond oil and pamper to his every need. Check the image below and see if you can guess from that what he is.
Nelson is a hedgehog without any spines which makes him look so different to any other hedgehog.
Volunteers at the center say he suffered some type of trauma which left him without any spines to protect himself. They also said it is truly amazing that he managed to survive against all odds. Hedgehogs are quite slow movers and rely on their spines for defense against predators. Without the spines more or less any predator could pick them off.
With regular massages for one year now they were hoping that his spines might grow back. But unfortunately this has not happened. So now they have a big problem to face. Should they keep Nelson as a pet in the sanctuary of the center or return him back to the wild where he probably would not last very long.
In the mean time they will look after and pamper him. He has a wonderful personality and loves spending time with the volunteers every day. Being massaged, cuddled and stroked to his hearts content. The staff say “If we need to look after Nelson for the rest of his life. That is not a problem for us. We love him and we will always be there for him.”
