Once, long ago, we were traveling in the far west of Scotland. During an after dinner stroll, we wandered to the local Kirk. Suddenly my worst childhood nightmare came true - the grave I was standing next to collapsed beneath my feet leaving me hip deep in the grave. Frozen with horror and about to scream, a small hedgehog appeared before me. He tilted his head and then nodded at me. As my companions pulled me from the grave, he turned and disappeared into the hedge. I have loved hedgehogs ever since.
The Uncommon Goods website describes this as a hedgehog. The tag on the item clearly states "porcupine." These are two different animals, and I bought it for someone who loves hedgehogs but is indifferent to porcupines. I was faced with the decision to either give it tag-less and hope for the best or print out a copy of the website and try to pass it off as a hedgehog. I decided to review this product so others would not end up with the same dilemma. Either way, the ornament is very cute, a good size/weight, and I am happy with the purchase, whatever animal it may be...
