Hi Ahmet

Lovely picture of a difficult to see animal! I live in Madras (south India) - where there is a species (or sub-species?) of a hedgehog, but I have never seen one (I go out natural historying a lot)


Hello Ahmet,
This is a cute little animal, its like something from a kids cartoon. You have captured it well in a sharp and detailed photo,

A beautiful specimen. Outstanding detail and POV. Nice natural colors. I hope you didn't club it for dinner as they do in Ceylon :-( A very nice photo...TFS
