Hedgehog on the Wall

The little hedgehog on the wall, looking for something to eat in the evening sun. Same animal but a bit different here and have a look into the Animals Portfolio.

There are seventeen species of this small animal in five genera, found through parts of Europe, Asia, Africa and New Zealand. Hedgehogs share distant ancestry with shrews, with gymnures possibly being the intermediate link, and have changed little over the last 15 million years. Like many of the first mammals they have adapted to a nocturnal, insectivorous way of life.
