Default "Weird, True & Freaky" on Animal Planet

I'm actually watching this show right now and the subject is "Obese Beasts."
I'm sure this has been posted before, but for those that haven't seen, the #5 on the countdown was George the hedgehog.
In 2007 he was found in Surrey and weighed 5lbs! hehe They said, when he was balled, he was the size of a soccer ball!

Yeah, I've heard of him before. He's HUGE! I just wonder if that's the biggest hedgehog on the planet, found or not.

I've seen this article before. Experts believe that he has a glandular problem that causes him to overeat. That's why he is so overweight. Poor thing! It can't be too comfortable.

I've never seen a European hedgehog that huge and I see them all the time outside. (found a dead one yesterday that got hit by a car )

I've seen this article before too and that image keeps sticking in my mind.

When we are with other people and we see a European hedgehog everyone start cooing how cute it is but my boyfriend is a terrible chauvinist and has to mention to me how much cuter and prettier whitebellied hedgies are
