Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Big and Small


Once upon a time there was an avocado pit that began to grow.


It grew and grew and grew and it is still growing in my living room, waiting for Summer.

    • I live in hedghog land and when my son was in his younger years he would often come home in the early morning hours of Sunday and he told me that there were hedgehogs everywhere on the paths. These are special miniature hedgehogs. I even think the idea came from America to have them at home and breed them.

    • I have no idea. The little hedgehogs are sweet. I once saw a normal hedgehog waslking around on my patio outside, but I left him to it. We have people here that have special rescue stations for hedgehogs and they are specialists. Personally I avoid contact with them, they have too many fleas and tics for my liking.


  1. I have never seen a picture of a baby hedgehog before in fact I’m not sure if I have ever seen a hedgehog. We don’t have them here in Australia. We do have echidna’s though.they are not like hedgehogs, their other name is spiny anteater. Echidna’s are monotremes, egg laying mammals like the platypus. I saw a baby echidna once by the side of the road. It was very cute but then I guess all baby animals are cute.

    • I remember learning at school that the only two mammels in the world that laid eggs and suckled their young were the duckbilled platypus and the spiny anteater. We have hundreds hedgehogs here, but they only appear at night, so I do not often see them. Australia have interesting animals. I find wombats so interesting.

      • Yes we do have interesting animals. Fossils have been found of giant wombat like creatures from the dinosaur age. My sister and I were amused at the museum to read that they were “unlikely to have lived in burrows”.
