Who's poo? (Hedgehog?)

Hello,

Whilst wandering the front lawn, I have come across this poo. It's very dark and much smaller than the regular cat poos I find. I am thinking hedgehog, anyone else have any ideas? I am going to be super excited if it is. (I've popped a 5p next to it for scale)

    Never seen a rat,but they could be here.

    yes we have foxes, but this is very small poo and doesn't smell foxy

    That looks like hedgehog poo to me. We get some left on the patio.  I could be revolting and suggest swirling it in some water to see if you get beetle carapaces, but some people might be eating lunchimage

     I once reconstructed an entire fish skeleton from otter spraints that way.

    It's not a mess, it's a nature reserve.

    Another vote for hedgehog. Rat looks like small torpedoes to me.

    I thought rat poo was shiny and sausage shape? fidget I'm going to go and give it a squish in a minute. Will let you know.

    Ok squished a bit of it. No obvious beetle carapaces and no obvious smell.
