Newborn Hedgehogs

On 01/17/99 we had the opportunity to see something that we don't often get to see close up... newborn hedgehogs! A mama gave birth to her babies outside of the nest box, then collected them up and brought them mostly inside. More often, the moms will hide the babies where we can not see them. It was just a stroke of good luck that a friend happened to be visiting with his camcorder, and was able to capture close up pictures. 2.0 MP was a really fancy digital camera at the time, so we never would have gotten clear pictures with the low resolution of our camera at the time. These wonderful screen shots were the result!
