Caught in headlights a hedgehog rushes across the road, her skinny legs exposed below her hitched up spiky skirt, running through the rain.

Fab description - why do we love hedgehogs so much? They repel us with their spikes, they run away from us whenever they can, they don't engage with us in any way and yet they are somehow adorable! I feel they are sweet in the same way as dolphins are - how could a hedgehog come into the same category as a dolphn?? Well, it seems they can!

I've always thought of that ridge as a skirt - made me smile to see you say it too. What a treat to see her legs!
