These three little ones are examples of "autumn juveniles". These were likely born in late summer but are too small to hibernate safely this year. Ideally they need to be at least 450g for a safe hibernation. We are helping out Mrs. Casey, the Hedgehog Lady, as she has had a sudden increase in little ones to care for just before Christmas. If you see any hedgehogs out during the day, or little ones at night, please try to contain them safely in a small box for transport as there are many rescues equipped to help them through the winter.
