    Baby Hedgehogs Hanging On Hairy Brush - The wet weather has persisted for nearly two months and probably will not subside until the Olympics begin, according to the Daily Mail.

When they were rescued and taken to a wildlife rescue center, they snuggled inside a dustpan, “perhaps mistaking the brush for their mom,” suggested the Telegraph.
