Friendly neighbourhood hedgehog

European hedgehog (Erinaceus europaeus), our friendly neighbour. This huge individual for a hedgehog (most likely the biggest I've ever seen) wandered to our backyard. Or well, frontyard, anyhow... First it startled and took cover but as soon as it saw I wasn't going to do anything it continued it's activities groveling around in the bushes. It also came out from the bushes even I was there and it looked at me. Then it sniffed the surrounding rose bushes and after a while it just trotted away. It seemed friendly towards me and I saw it felt safe. Funny little guy, hope to see you soon. ;)
