Apparently obesity isn’t just for American’s anymore… make that humans in general. First we have George, the greedy little pig as old British women would call him. This hedgehog was delivered to the Wildlife Aid centre in Leatherhead, England five times heavier than his natural weight. At 5lbs, George is dangerously obese and a testament to the fattening properties of garden insects, fruits and mushrooms.
Remind anyone else of this?
More of a trailer park tiggywinkle if you ask me.
Next we have Peaches, the fat baby wombat, from Tomerong, north of Sydney. In this series of caught-in-the-act photos, Peaches has become trapped in her caregiver’s flower pots after eating all the flowers and then burrowing her way in.
This happened to Benny once after a night of drinking.
