A pair of African pygmy hedgehogs are being cared for by the RSPCA after being abandoned in a box in a London park.
The white hedgehogs were found huddled up in a cardboard box with newspaper and a fleece in Harrow.
The hedgehogs - now called Elvis and Priscilla - are now being cared for by RSPCA staff at Putney before being moved to a specialist wildlife centre for rehoming.
However, the RSPCA is concerned that the African pygmy hedgehog is one of Britain’s latest pet crazes.
An African pygmy hedgehog’s natural habitat is the steppes, savanna and grassy areas of west, central and east Africa.
