Two baby hedgehogs have been saved after being found at a building site in Mosta.
They were rescued by the wildlife team at Nature Trust Malta following a call for help from a neighbour.
The two creatures, who are so young their eyes haven’t yet opened, are being looked after by volunteers from the organisation.
Unfortunately, their mum hasn’t been found yet.
A Nature Trust spokesman said: ‘Thanks to the kindness of a resident in Mosta two baby hedgehogs were rescued from a construction site yesterday.
‘The mother could not be found. The hoglets, still with their eyes closed, are now at our rehab volunteers.’
The orphaned hedgehogs are said to be in good health and feeding well.
