Scale

Can you give me some idea of scale please?

Hedgehog and fox droppings are different in size.

Between 7 and 7.5cm

I'm going to have to get a rule for these things to include in the photographs...

Thanks

Size

At around 7 cm it is too large to be hedgehog I'm afraid, it is more likely to be fox.

Thanks Graham

It was found in my son's garden. He'll be pleased, I think.
