Default Re: Hedgehog and meal worms?

then it's really a personal choice based on your hedgie. some can tolerate a little more based on the size of the hedgie and their activity level. the problem is that they are high in fat so you don't want to feed too many. i personally don't feed more than 2-5 a week, but there are others that feed more. if your hedgie is a little chunkier then a good alternative is crickets they are basically empty calories, not nearly as high in fat. your higher fat worms are going to be your mealworms, wax worms, and some others i can't think of right now lol.
