Where do I live?

Europe.

Who am I?

At the slightest hint of danger I roll myself into a ball, all spines out to discourage my aggressor!

Quiet inhabitant of your garden, I can be found all through Europe. I live on plains, in woods, even in city parks! I am mostly active at night, which is the moment I prefer to look for my favourite food: earth worms. I can also eat all sorts of insects, slugs, mushrooms and fruits.

In Autumn, I eat more to prepare for hibernation through Winter. I’ll spend the coldest months in my nest, rolled in a ball.

If you want to glimpse me in your garden, you can leave out some dry dog (or cat) food and let a corner of the garden run wild, with branches so I can hide. But do not touch me: I am a wild animal covered in spines!
