Not all small and cute creatures are defenceless!
The Hispaniolan solenodon (Solenodon paradoxus) is one of the few venomous mammals in the world. They are capable of producing venomous saliva that they inject into their prey through grooves in their incisors. .
The Hispaniolan Solenodon has so many quirky and unique characteristics it is considered to be an Evolutionarily Distinct and Globally Endangered (EDGE) species. Its lineage can be traced back to over 70 million years ago when dinosaurs roamed the earth! .
Despite this amazing, shrew-like animal overcoming world-changing disasters, it is now listed as endangered on IUCNs red list. .
It’s species like this that truly showcase how incredible our planet is, and we believe it’s our duty to conserve these weird and wonderful animals for generations to come

Some truly amazing news to share with you all. Last night we carried out a pre-release assessment on Tatty, particularly watching her movement and behaviour as she still has a bit of a head tilt. SHE PASSED!
Her story is one that pulls at the heart strings, admitted through the RSPCA she had been attacked by something resulting in significant head trauma and wounds to one ear. She lost a lot of blood and was in shock. We managed to stabilise her with fluids, pain relief and antibiotics. A few days later when she was barely in a stable condition herself, she gave birth to two premature hoglets. We gave her the space to care for them and try and bond with them, but sadly after 48 hours the hoglets condition began to deteriorate, we lifted them and placed them in one of our incubators but sadly they passed away within 24 hours.
With more intensive care Tatty slowly began to regain strength, we came so close to losing her on multiple occasions we are overjoyed that this day has come and that soon she will be back off to the wild 🦔🐾 #hedgehog#wildlife#wildlife_perfection#wildliferescue#wildliferehabilitation#successstory#recoveryjourney#charity#cornwall#kernow#lovehedgehog#hoglets#nature#naturelovers#wildlifeconservation#nocturnal#wilderfuture
