Heads Up!

Within the collection we have a hedgehog without a head.

This is the front...I think

...or maybe this end is the front

A Victorian curiosity? Possibly.

A taxidermists interpretation of a ‘cut and shut’ job? I hope so. Because if that is the case, there is a hedgehog out there with two heads. Which is far more useful than being a hedgehog with two bottoms!
