In his refreshingly light-hearted style, Pat Morris presents scientific and down to earth information about one of Britain’s best-loved wild creatures, the bumbling and endearing hedgehog.
This is an entirely new revision of the book for 2014, expanded and updated by Dr Pat Morris to take account of recent research and controversial issues. This edition of the book also features a gallery of the author`s own hedgehog photographs.
Pat Morris is the UK’s leading hedgehog expert. Having studied them for over 40 years, he has probably published more scientific papers on the European hedgehog than anyone else. He is President of the British Hedgehog Preservation Society and an established writer and broadcaster, often appearing on television and radio wildlife programmes sharing his expertise on hedgehogs as well as other animals.
The book is illustrated throughout with cartoon and line drawings by renowned wildlife artist Guy Troughton.
