This is Jabba, the fattest hedgehog you’ve ever seen
Jabba, who is also known as The Big One, was found by a sweet lady who took him in as a baby and fed him.
He is three times the size of an average hedgehog, and weighs almost 4 lbs.
Maybe, the spoiled him a bit too much.
He is so fat that is unable to curl up and has trouble walking.
He has been handed over to the Oak and Furrows Wildlife Rescue in England to prepare him for a return to the wild.
Since arriving at the wildlife sanctuary, Jabba has been put on a very strict diet to get him to slim down before being released.
Animal carer Emma Hickey said, Jabba “can walk but it’s more of a wobble. He doesn’t like to walk and he can’t roll up properly.”
He needs to lose weight so he can curl up properly and protect himself, Hickey said. “We are hoping to release him back into the wild after he has lost the weight.”
Jabba has so far lost arond 40g on a diet of puppy food and water.
Jabba’s food is kept at one end and his bed at the other to encourage him to exercise.
“He’s the biggest hedgehog I’ve ever seen,” Hickey said. “He’s the size of a football but we hope he will lose the weight in two or three months.”
