'Twas the first Sunday after the first Full Moon after the Northern Hemisphere's Autumnal Equinox (October 16 this year). Believe it or not, I did get this one done on time, but, due to internet connection problems (no, the solution wasn't getting broadband), I'm somewhere around two-thirds of a month late posting it.
For this Wester, we bring you the Croquet hedgehog (Erinaceous europaeus dodgsonii), a curious subspecies of the European hedgehog that naturally comes in a variety of colors. Due to this hedgehog's naturally colorful quills and sturdy nature, English royalty bred them specifically for a more challenging game of croquet. Thanks to laws enacted in the past half century, the Croquet hedgehog has found a new and safer role as a popular pet with experienced hedgehog owners.
Happy (belated) Wester everyone!
