An antibiotic-resistant superbug – a type of MRSA – evolved naturally as a result of a battle between a fungus and bacteria on the skin of wild hedgehogs. The evidently ‘hedgehog-derived’ bacteria developed in nature long before the antibiotics we are familiar with were discovered. An international research team found that a skin fungus common in hedgehogs naturally produces antibiotics. Bacteria on the animals’ skin developed antibiotic resistance in response.
