Ollie, the hedgehog is part of a petting zoo that comes to the nursing home where I volunteer. Of all the little critters they brought, he was my favorite.
To see that ugly, little and cutest thing you ever saw face click on the picture.
Notice the lady holding him wheres gloves, I touched him and he is VERY prickly. When first picked up he has no eyes or nose, looks like a smooth ball. as he wakes up, the spines get really stiff. The man who travels with Ollie holds him without gloves. I wanted to hold him, but he is very timid around strangers.
Ollie travels with tortoise, very large ugly spiders, small dragons, monkeys and a few other exotic pets. The handlers go from wheel chair to wheel chair with each pet and the residents are allowed to stroke and talk to them. NOT the monkeys, they just put on a show. And what a show.
