Default Re: Isn't interested in new food?

If she's eating mealies, that's more than some hedgehogs. My Archimedes would eat absolutely nothing but kibble, until I finally offered him watermelon after 5-6 weeks of trying new things. Even with that he wouldn't eat it right away, but he finished the little bit I put in a bowl in his cage overnight, which is better than anything else. He still won't touch mealies, and I have yet to find anything else besides the watermelon. So, yes, sounds like you just have a picky hedgehog - it's not uncommon! Some of them will come around to a particular new thing if you offer it repeatedly, and for some it's a matter of finding just the right thing, but some hedgehogs will go their wholes lives and ignore anything but kibble.
