What exactly does that mean???? Do you use bedding in your cages or liners???????? Oh, and thanks for the info
Gutloading means feed the vegetables before you freeze them. So put a carrot or broccoli or something else in with them. The insects will eat it and gain the nutrients. Then when the hedgehog eats the insects, he's also getting the nutrients .

I use liners. Liners are the most recommended and safest option.
