Let's say I put strong smelly spices in a small container so they can smell it but not eat it, things like cardamom, would that still be viable?

Please do not post on old threads. Start your own. Why would a hedgehog need to just smell herbs? Just go without it.

You'd have to make sure they can't get the container open, but that would be fine. Just be careful with the amount & strength of the scent - hedgehogs can be pretty sensitive to things & if they really don't like a scent, they may stay in bed to try & stay away from it and not eat or run for the night.

And I'm guessing reasoning is enrichment, Poppy. Scent enrichment is a common category for providing enrichment & a lot of places will use oils, other animal bedding/feces/etc., herbs, and so on to provide a novel smell to investigate.

Interesting. I have never heard of smell enrichment! I learn something new everyday from you!

My breeder said that herbs are toxic to hedgehogs but I have no idea why
I just know that they can't have them
