What Animal Am I?

It’s What Animal Am I Wednesday!

Let’s hear from this week’s guest.

“Hi Friends!! Thanks for having me on today, Iโ€™ve heard lots about What Am I Wednesday from my other friends in the museum!

Iโ€™m not from around here. In fact, as my name suggests Iโ€™ve come all the way from western Europe! Some of my relatives live across the ditch in New Zealand, although they were introduced in the 1800โ€™s.

Iโ€™m small, brown, round and my back is covered in spines with yellow tips. I can have up to 7000 spines on my back! When Iโ€™m feeling threatened, I like to roll into a ball and use my strong back muscles to raise my spines.

Iโ€™m mostly nocturnal and can be heard snuffing around peopleโ€™s gardens at night looking for big crunchy beetles, earthworms and slugs โ€“ my favourite!”
