For most of the year our Small Mammal Room would be more appropriately named the Hedgehog Room
as it can often be housing 60 or more prickly 'guests'.
Over the winter months we can be looking after over 200 hedgehogs, not just in this room
but in pens and enclosures outside as well.
At other times of the year the room is home to squirrels, rabbits, fox and badger cubs, polecats,
hares and even the occassional skunk!
Any mammal which is still receiving treatment for its illness or injury remains in this room until it is fit enough to move to an outside enclosure or to be released.
