Close up one of a most elusive and endemic one. This is “Bare-bellied Hedgehog or Madras Hedgehog (Paraechinus nudiventris)”. This was the find of the year of 2018. Found and photographed this amazing species at Tirunelveli outskirts, during the month of August, 2018. The one in the frame is juvenile one and I found him with her mother too. The mom was curled up for the whole time and was too stubborn to open even once. But this cute juvenile was very curious and was roaming here and there. I was lucky to meet them and spend some time. 😊
