Default Re: Treat List (Safe Fruits and Veggies)

Any fish is fine, also "meaty" (crustacean) shellfish like lobster, crab, and shrimp/prawns. Mollusk-type shellfish (clams, mussels, oysters, etc) are fine in theory but the meat of them is more chewy, so a hedgehog might not do well with that - they should be cut into small pieces but be cautious until you know your hedgie doesn't have any problems with that. Same thing with squid and octopus. As with other meats, any seafood should be cooked and unseasoned. Smoked fish (such as smoked salmon/"lox") is too salty.
