Default Re: how much worms

It somewhat depends on your hedgehogs activeness, if he runs his wheel a lot a bit more fat might be needed, but all the worms are decently high in fat content and should be kept low, and they provide a lot of protein which can be bad in large amounts I would limit mealies to about 3-5 a day.

As long as no issues are had with superworms biting your hedgehog I wouldn't go with too many of them either and not all of them in the same day adds more verity.

Its important to monitor your hedgehogs weight for obesity if he is keeping a stable weight without issues balling up or having fat on his legs it should be okay but kept monitored
