Hedgehog becomes influencer by visiting famous landmarks on walks with his owner
Meet Winston Churchquill, the aspiring travel influencer who’s here to inspire you to explore your surroundings.
Winston is getting attention online for sharing photos outside landmarks he visits on his daily walk.
We should probably mention at this point that Winston Churchquill is a hedgehog. That’s quite important.
The African pigmy hedgehog is owned by Georgie Andrews, 23, who takes Winston out and about on her daily walks around her home city of Plymouth, Devon, and makes sure to snap photos of their adventures.
Georgie has photographed her pal in front of many of the city’s iconic sights including the Hoe, the Barbican, and the Naval Memorial.
He has proved such a hit that Winston now has his own Instagram account detailing his exploits.
Georgie, a waitress, said: ‘I follow a hedgehog account on Instagram and she takes hers up on mountains and stuff, so I thought it would be a good idea to try it.
‘Mainly I took him around the Hoe and the Barbican, he likes getting out and about.
‘They went down well online, I’ve got about 1,000 followers on Instagram now – I started off with about 60.
‘They all love the hedgehog.’
Other locations the nine-month old pet has also posed in front of include the Tamar Bridge, the Guildhall, and the famous Smeaton’s Tower.
