Yikes! Is this ugly!

Poor Spud, the hedgehog, lost his spines! Spud was found wandering in a garden and taken to Tiggywinkles Wildlife Hospital in Aylesbury, Bucks, last August. Experts are baffled by his condition, which has caused his skin to dry and his spines to fall out. The hospital is asking practitioners of alternative medicine to suggest possible remedies. The bald animal was christened Spud by hospital staff because, when curled up into a ball, he resembles a potato. Source Photo: JEFF MOORE

Poor little guy! Based on this picture, I would have named him Rocky.
