Leucistic Hedgehog In Care

This very unusual Leucistic Hedgehog has come into care from Cooksbridge today via Hamsey Hedgehogs. Very light in colour, but not Albino, this is a condition in which there is partial loss of pigmentation in an animal—which causes white, pale, or patchy coloration of the skin, hair, feathers, scales or cuticle, but not the eyes. Too small to hibernate the hedgehog will be put through the usual health checks and treatment before being fed up and then allowed to hibernate along with the other 98 hedgehogs already in care!
