Default New hedgie owner questions

Hey guys, I'm both a new hedgehog owner and new to this site so I have a couple of questions about hedgie toys.

I have a few but one that I wanted to ask about is called a "Kong" which is technically for dogs but as most small animal toys can wear hedgehog teeth down etc, etc I got this instead. It looks like this: ... 1,s:0,i:94

I want to know if

a) Is it safe for hedgies?

b) What type of foods can I put inside of it for them to get out?

c) *weird question* Can hedgehogs eat peanut butter if they are licking it out of the Kong?

I'd be scared to use a Kong with a hog. The hole (even for the puppy one) is too small and they could get their whole head stuck in it. I wouldn't risk it when there are good cat toys available. ... lInUS%2FNo

Balls like that are great because they have no open areas for a nose or jaw to get stuck in.

If you want them to explore for treats, you can always make a dig box out of rounded stones and hide in pieces of food or treats. ... lInUS%2FNo
