African hedgehogs

In Pitkovice we were visited by African hedgehogs. And just for the record - the white-bellied hedgehog or African pygmy hedgehog is a mammal of the genus Atelerix from the hedgehog family. It is native to the region from Senegal to Sudan and Zambia. It weighs about 450 g, the length of the male is 18-23 cm, while the female is up to 25 cm.

It was a really lovely visit! The clients were beaming and listening attentively. They learned about the breeding of these hedgehogs, how they eat, the environment they live in and also their daily routine.
