Snowball albino hedgehog
Unfortunately, in the animal world, as well as in the world of people, someone unlike the others faces problems. In particular, albino. For albino hedgehogs, as well as for many albino animals, to survive in the wild is difficult. And the reason is simple. Because its coat makes it hard to camouflage, so such animal becomes an easy target for enemies. Noteworthy, its unusual coloring is due to a rare genetic defect which affects one in 100,000 hedgehogs.
Found orphaned in High Wycombe, poor animal got to the animal hospital in October. According to staff, the baby hedgehog weighed just 300 grams and was suffering with lung problems. Luckily, the Tiggywinkles wildlife hospital, which is in Buckinghamshire, England takes care of Snowball. Since then, the four-month old hedgehog has almost tripled in size and it now weighs 900 gram.
