Photographers Marie-Luce Hubert and Jean-Louis Klein are always busy looking after animals, be it cats on Greek islands, Eskimo dogs in Canada, or neglected donkeys. But they were at home in France when their neighbour - a twelve-year old boy named Lucas - found four baby hedgehogs that were wandering alone without their mother. Despite efforts to tempt her back with food and water, she still hadn’t returned the next day, and the orphans were hungry. Without a hedgehog mother to raise them, there was only one thing Marie-Luce and Jean-Louis could do: rescue the hoglets, and become foster parents to the prickly youngsters themselves.
