HARRIET, LISTEN TO ME, YOU’RE DOING GREAT.
Are we almost there?
WE WOULD BE IF IT WASN’T FOR THIS FUCKING TRAFFIC. COME ON, PEOPLE! MOVE IT! HOW FAR APART ARE THE CONTRACTIONS?
A few minutes, I think. I’m so sorry about this, Hank. Larry’s stuck in a work meeting and- oh! Oh my god that hurts!
DON’T WORRY ABOUT IT. IT’S THE LEAST I CAN DO FOR ALL THE FOOD AND CLEAN BEDDING YOU’VE GIVEN ME. NOW LIE BACK AND FOCUS ON YOUR BREATHING. WE’RE ALMOST THERE.
The world could use more giant hedgehogs. This awesome specimen is located near London’s Clapham Common and measures 12’ long, 8’ wide, and 7’ tall. He was created by sculptor Andy Billet and his team using willow, coconut fiber, fake fur and other materials. He’s got nearly 2000 spines, which were made using soft wood to ensure that no one loses an eye when they run up to hug him, which is exactly what we want to do.
This enormous likeness a European hedgehog, of one of the world’s cutest mammals was created to promote the second series of David Attenborough’s Natural Curiosities series on UKTV’s Watch channel.
