Arrow My tiny baby

After my concern with Dexter's weight, he seems to be hovering around 305g. He doesn't seem underweight. He eats 1 tablespoon of food per night and 8-10 mealworms. He runs/poops/and pushes his flower pot around

I guess I just have a tiny little guy!
That's okay, we're good for each other. I'm only 5'0", we can be little together

aw! that's so cute!

my oldest hedgie is just a few weeks shy of 3 y.o. & is 300g. my youngest is not a year & weighs between 600 & 700g! you just never know. i love the big ones but i really love the teeeeny ones.

just keep taking pictures! some of us -though we may have multiple hogs- are not lucky enough to have model hedgies.

Cholla's our smallest. I have to work at it to keep him over 300 grams. He runs so much every night. He eats his kibble & also any blended & pureed food I give Zoey & lots of mealies every night. The girls aren't huge, they are both around 350, but he just looks so itty bitty.
I would love to have a two-hander at some point!

My smallest was Gizmo at 240g and I've had numerous boys in the 270's. I've also had a couple that were over 1000.
