The incredible skeleton of a hedgehog.

A hedgehog is any of the spiny mammals of the subfamily Erinaceinae, in the eulipotyphlan family Erinaceidae. Seventeen species of their kind are there in Europe, Africa, New Zealand and Asia. There are no living species to the Americas, but it was once present in North America.

A picture showing the skeleton of a hedgehog is often seen with a mixture of awe and skepticism as it is seen on online:


This is a genuine picture that shows the remains of a deceased hedgehog. However, it’s not completely accurate to label this display as a hedgehog skeleton, as the pictured quills are not part of the animal’s skeletal system. Quills are composed of keratin, the same stuff our hair and fingernails are made of, and would decompose if not artificially preserved by a taxidermist.

The above-displayed picture shows the work of Russian taxidermist Маргариты Чайки (Margarita Chayka), from whom VK user Anastasia Fyodorova commissioned three pieces after her pet hedgehogs passed away. Fyodorova posted several images of these displays to her page on the Russian social media network VK in June 2018 along, with a message thanking Chayka for her stellar work

One of the pictures shared by Fyodorova shows all three of the displays created by Chayka. The first pictures a normal hedgehog skeleton, the second shows a specimen featuring both the skeleton and the quills, and the final display features a stuffed hedgehog.

Kindly follow for more rare knowledge.
