What does this poop means?
 
I got my hedgehog about 3 days from a local breeder

I fed him 2 live super worm and banana this afternoon and then tonight when I place him down in his play pen he suddenly poop 3x times

really concern about the poop.

They just look a bit weird due to the new food, I think. And his laying position is due to being comfortable, or too warm, or even just to liking the texture of the fabric.

update: this morning I looked at his cage and saw poops again.

Yep - stress poops. New foods, new environment, new people, etc. Are you feeding the same food as the breeder gave him? I would hold off on any more new treats for a couple of weeks, let him finish settling in first so you don't upset his stomach too much.

Oh okay. Yup I still give him the same food. Thanks again :)

The position as far as I know is normal, my little guy lays belly down allll the time, it's just his preference.
