An African pygmy hedgehog was found abandoned at a London Underground station raising concerns about a new craze of keeping the exotic animals as pets The RSPCA says pygmy hedgehogs are a considerable commitment and would need a large temperature-controlled enclosure to mimic where they come from in the wild with space for digging foraging and exercise The hedgehog now named Paddington was rescued on 11 August by Jill Sanders an animal collection officer I was relieved that the little hedgehog was still alive as it was far too cold for him she said He was crammed into a tiny cage and must have been very disoriented and frightened It is unclear if the pet had been lost or purposefully left at the station PHOTO RSPCA-PA BBCSnapshot photography pigmy hedgehog pet RSPCA LondonUnderground Paddington Meme
