7-Foot Tall Hedgehog Appears in London

(Video Link)

Clapham Common is a park in London. You might expect to see small wild animals there, such as birds or squirrels. But a hedgehog? That's less likely. One that's as big as a truck? That's a rare find.

A group of artists spent 2 months building this realistic sculpture that measures 12 feet long and has 2,000 wooden stakes serving as the hedgehog's spines. They placed it in Clapham Common to attract attention to Sir David Attenborough's documentary series Natural Curiosities. An upcoming episode will focus on the hedgehog, an iconic symbol of British wildlife. A survey reveals that a quarter of Britons say that they've never seen one in the wild.

You can see photos of the hedgehog sculpture here.
