Default My hedgie won’t eat vegetables.

I have had my 3 month old hedgehog for around one month. I keep putting fruits and veggies in his food bowl, but he won’t eat any. All he eats is cat food and mealworms. He won’t eat peanut butter ether. Does any one have any suggestions?

Many hedgies won't eat or don't like vegetables, and this is normal.
Fruits should only be given as a snack since they contain a lot of sugar. Their main diet should be kibble and insects. Try feeding him a variety of insects, like crickets, silkworms, etc. instead of vegetables. If you wanted, you could gut load the insects with whatever veggie you wanted, and then feed the bugs to your hedgehog.

Also, I've never heard of giving peanut butter as a treat. I'm not sure if it is okay for them or not.
