June 8, 2007: Vets pop blown-up hedgehog



Can't possibly be true. But it is.

According to this Daily Mail story, hedgehogs have an occasional problem where air will escape from their lungs into their body. When that happens they puff up twice normal size, like a puffer fish.

A woman found the beast on the right lying in her driveway, and took him to the nearby vet for treatment; they stuck a tube in the guy and let all the air out, and they say he'll recover.

And what did they name him?

"Michelin"

It is to laugh. Happy Friday.

Round and round the cobbler's bench
The monkey chased the hedgehog,
The monkey thought 'twas all in fun
Pop! Goes the hedgehog.

this could be a natural defense mechanism -- like chuckwalla lizards

Quote:
Harmless to humans, these lizards are known to run from potential threats; a tight rock crevice is sought wherein the Chuckwalla will inflate its body with air in order to entrench itself.

We had a Biology teacher who told the same story to each new year of students:

He got up early to swim in the hotel pool. He wanted a quiet pool as he is shortsighted and wouldn't be wearing glasses/ lenses. I forget which stroke he was using (butterfly would perhaps be funniest) but suffice to say he surfaced to find himself in intimate contact with a huge, bloated hedgehog. The way he told it, the animal had fallen in the pool and absorbed enough water to bloat the corpse via osmosis (hence the story's inclusion in the Biology lesson).

In hindsight I wonder if the hedgehog was already bloated before it fell in...?

Anyway, what he didn't realise was that his "amusing" story was famous within the school and students waited with bated breath for it in each new year. In the time-honoured fashion of judgemental world-weary teens, he was laughed at rather than with for telling it annually. I won't post his name as it doesn't seem fair, but he was always referred to as "Hedgehog Surname".

What part of his body?

Is it too late for me to mention that there's an awful lot of skinning that has to take place before you can cook and eat a bloated hedgehog?

And Bri...I *am* still on your list someplace, right? Just let me know which Subway, okay?

Hah! Go figure. When a hedgehog has to let air out, it's cute. But if I do it, it's disgusting.



dixy  Sunday Jun 10 04:54 AM

That looks freaky Gah

Dude, you wrap them in clay and bake them. The spines come off with the clay. Perfect for campfire snacking. Yummy
