    Very funny! I had a pet hedgehog many years ago. They are such odd little creatures! I’m sure Hazel would have been just as salty. :-D

    Giliell, trust me, you do not want slugs in your garden. Not if you intend to have some flowers or veggies there.
    One of the interesting things about hedgehogs is, how much noise such a small animal can make. When you get awaken in a warm sommer night by a hedgehog trampling under your window, you might think it is a rampaging rhino.

    Shit, bad habits die hard. Sorry, Giliell, I do not wish to be condescending, presumptuous or mansplaining and yet I managed all three in one sentence and realized it too late.

    A few slugs is fine, esp. if you have hedgehogs or other beasties to eat them up. Although I prefer snails; I don’t like the giant naked slugs (supposedly migrated from Spain or some such southerly direction) so much.
    Out in the country, though, during the summer, one of the kids’ jobs is to pick snails off the cabbages, because yes, they eat too much. :)

    I do not want any slugs but the slugs don’t care about my opinion. This is the garden as it was when we first bought the house. Behind it there’s a wood with a little creek so “damp” is a word that comes to mind. Here’s a pic taken from the other side*, so there’s a lot of water running down towards our garden. And the slugs try to eat everything in my front garden as well. That’S why I’m really interested in making the garden hedgehog friendly. And yes, they’re loud as fuck.
    There’s nothing like being woken in the middle of the night by a hedgehog rummaging through your camping gear…

    *Ours is the left side house, semi detached.

    I’ve experienced raccoons and skunks, the latter being more pungent than the former.
    Also porcupines having sex. You want loud and obnoxious, that’s pretty much the definition.
