Cause can sometimes be linked to specific nutrient deficiencies, but sometimes is linked to a mental disorder.
I was wondering this too, I know it can be found in dogs and cats but I'm not sure about hedgehogs. I always crave paper, ice, and a few other things. So does my aunt, we can go through a pack of computer paper in no time I know, I'm weird haha.

As for the babies, I agree with Nancy!

I'm sorry for your loss! Hugz.
