    Hello! I rescued a hedgehog about three weeks ago and four days ago she gave birth to seven babies. I had NO idea she was pregnant. I have read everything I can on what to do for her—including posts on here. :) I have some questions: 1) Everything I’ve read has said to leave her completely...

    Hello. New guy here. I'm not very familiar with hedgehogs so I'd be really grateful for any advice. So long story short: I live in a big city (in Bulgaria, Europe) and found a hedgehog in the grassland between the buildings. My first intention was to try to tame it and if that doesn't work out...

  10. Diet and Nutrition
    Hi everyone! I had heard from someone that feeding baby hedgehogs mealworms is bad because they're too fattening. I'm pretty sure this is false, but I just wanted to make sure. I know that insects are high in fat, but they should have some insects, yes? If someone can debunk this for me then...

    Hi! I got a hedgie for Christmas and was told it was a boy... he gave birth so yeah I don't think he's a boy. I don't really don't know what to be because she gave birth under a shirt I left in her enclosure. I don't have a proper bed yet so I've been using my shirts. Now she's underneath it...

    Hello everyone, I am planning my last litter with my female hedgehog. I got a beautiful male hedgehog from a experienced breeder to use. I let him settle in for a couple of days on his own and then put them together. The funny thing is; he has no interest in my female hedgehog AT ALL. He's not...

    My hedgehog gave birth approximately 3 weeks ago. The babies have their eyes open and are fully developed, minus their small size. The mom rolled around in her poop last night and now has it all in her spikes. Can I give her a bath? Or do I need to wait until the babies are gone? I hate to see...
