BABY TENRECS!    In late June (2010), the WCS Bronx Zoo welcomed two baby Lesser Hedgehog Tenrecs (Echinops telfairi). While they might look like hedgehogs, and even have hedgehog in their name, they are actually a totally different family of mammals. Tenrec species come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, with some looking like hedgehogs, some like mice, and some even like otters!
