The UK's only spiny mammal is the hedgehog, and it doesn't even climb hedges!

Here's the one under my deck 10 years ago. Most critters will turn and fight/bite. Porcupines turn their back on you.

Hedgehogs roll up so that they are spiny on all sides if they are disturbed.
They soon unroll again of you put a bowl of dog or cat food in front of them.
I once gave one some raw steak and it unrolled and ate the lot.
They usually eat slugs and worms and sometimes beetles.

I have been finding Chestnuts pods in my back yard this year. It looks like Mr. RH next to me may have planted a Japanese Chestnut tree. I will have to talk to him the next time I see him.

He is in his 90s and does not come out often.
