Woman Rushes Bobble to Animal Hospital

A woman in the UK spotted what she thought was an abandoned baby hedgehog. She carefully scooped it up, put it in a box with a dish of food and a hot water bottle, and hoped it would survive the night. In the morning, she took the box to the Lower Moss Wood Nature Reserve and Wildlife Hospital in Cheshire. There, staff identified the hedgehog as a bobble. When I first saw the headline of this story, I had to read it because I didn’t know what kind of animal a bobble is.

A “bobble” is a puffy decoration for a hat, what Americans would call a pom-pom or a topknot. The staff at the wildlife hospital had a good laugh and said that the woman did the right thing. Hedgehogs aren’t normally seen out in the daytime, and if this had been a hedgehog, it was surely in distress. They suggested naming this species “hedgebobble.” It looks more like a tribble to me. -via Metafilter
