Default Pics for School Project?

Hello all! We're doing persuasive speeches in my Professional Speech class, and the topic I've chosen is legalization of hedgehog ownership in the city of Denver. It involves a powerpoint presentation, and I was wondering if anyone would be willing to share some of their favorite hedgehog pictures with me?

One of my talking points is that selective breeding (and their interactions with gentle owners )has made them incapable of surviving predators if they escape (even if the climate wasn't an issue) so I'm trying to show what the life of a domestic hedgehog is like.

And... and nothing, that's about it. XD Any pics you'd be willing for me to share with my class would be helpful.

Feel free to look around in my Flickr Hedgehog pictures here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/cynthb/set ... 542499795/

This one in particular might show just how tame a hedgie can be - Tumbles was totally fearless http://www.flickr.com/photos/cynthb/171 ... 542499795/

I didn't know hedgehog ownership was illegal in Denver. I hope didn't break any laws when I drove *through* Denver to bring Wilson home. Oh, and we've also taken him to Denver for a visit to my in-laws one weekend.

You are welcome to use any of my bazillion pictures that I've posted here.
However, to make it easier, here are some I thought would work. I tried to pick ones that would look innocent, gentle, completely nothing to be afraid of. :P

Awwww! So cute! I can't wait to show off your hedgies. With so many replies already, I can tell narrowing my choices down is going to be a difficult and adorable task.

It's weird, isn't it? I mean, why are they legal everywhere in Colorado but Denver? I think you should be fine, though. After all, the Rocky Mountain Hedgehog Show alternates between Denver and Colorado Springs, and I'm sure they would have moved it if folks started getting arrested.

I think its the fear that our hedgehogs (or other exotics) will become free and overrun the eco system in the area. We do have examples in random places, pythons in the everglades, the mice plague down in Aussie Land back in the 1980s, and so on. I'm pretty sure that is why they are illegal in NYC, the same with ferrets which were banned due to fears they would organize into wild colonies despite the fact they're unable to survive on their own.

The only place that I know that is psychotic about it, is Penn State. If I remember correctly, they made them illegal except for the breeders, and then turned around and made them illegal in any way, shape or form. They'll snatch them out of your car, they raided the breeders like they were terrorists. Its basically said do not travel through the state with your hedgie, which makes it hard as they basically block New England in.

And now, time for some spam, my picture collection that I have online at the moment.

That "Hester Sue Is Not Pleased" picture literally made me laugh out loud! So funny.

Spam? Nah, the more I have to choose from at the end of the weekend, the better. I find what you have to say about the legality issues quite interesting, I had no idea Penn State was so militant about it! Would you mind if I picked a few quotes out of that post for use in my speech?
