A hedgehog friendly garden looks like this
The tour takes you to a garden which is natural in design and beneficial for hedgehogs...
... with even a pond and a feeding station.
Knowledge of evolution ... and biology
Big boards offer detailed and comprehensive information on these and many other subjects: For example you may
like to look at the ancestors of the hedgehog...
... or study the board about the hedgehogs' biology.Learn how to sex a hedgehog, how they roll up, facts about
hibernation or the construction of nests. There are answers to nearly everything you might ask.
All about hoglets ... and some exhibits
There is valuable information in words and pictures about hoglets, litter size and
breeding season in Germany...
... and there are also shown some preserved specimen of hedgehogs, within an albinotic one. A hedgehog's skeleton
allows to study its build.
Hazards ... and care of hedgehogs in need of help
A main focus of the exhibition is the realistic representation of dangers to hedgehogs. Many hazards
are demonstrated by illustrative material: gardening tools as well as a tyre...
... and the proper housing and feeding of hedgehogs in need of help are demonstrated through an enclosure
and on a realistic display table.
Studying literature ... and prickly art
You may be tempted to leaf through the books, and you may like to buy some of the inexpensive leaflets
and booklets. A database of scientific literature is at the disposal of anyone who is interested. You can
watch a video about hedgehogs, or you might like to take a look at our educational software "Hedgehogs –
Secret Companions of the Night"...
...or you may be interested in the posters with hedgehogs in art or music, in old encyclopaedias or in science.
There are also some posters with greetings postcards, fairytale postcards, stamps and one with the unforgettable "Mecki".
