Meet The Clangers!... 

...well, they're the Tenrecs, actually, at Studley Grange and the kids are lovin' them!
 
They look like hedgehogs, they feel like hedgehogs, but believe it or not - they're not hedgehogs.
 
They're tenrecs! Or as Julia Stewart, who cares for them at Studley Grange Butterfly World & Farm Park in Swindon, prefers to call them - The Clangers!
 
Certainly anyone old enough to remember the original BBC programme will probably smile in agreement, as these little cuties bear an incredible resemblance.
 
One thing is for sure though, is that Tink and his friends are very popular with adults and children alike, as Julia explains in the video below.
 
 
 
 
 
The tenrecs are just some of the many animals and creatures that visitors can enjoy and interact with throughout the year at Studley Grange, just off Junction 16 of the M4.
