Hello all you wonderful hedgehog people out there. I was just wondering:
Do hedgehogs instinctually know when winter is approaching and eat more? I am only asking because I have noticed that my hedgie has been eating more food of late and been gaining a little bit of weight. It's nothing really to worry about but I was wondering if they actually can sense a change in the season, even if they are in a warm, temperature regulated house?
