    Hello! I took Amy (cute little female, 2 months old) to the vet yesterday and he told me I should not feed insects until she is at least 6 months old. Is that true? 'Cause I have already given her some dubia roaches and mealworms (which she loved btw). I don't know if I should believe...

    So I will be getting a hedgie soon, and I know that insects are super important to have in their diet. However, the only insects available anywhere near me are dead ones, either canned or dried (I will be purchasing the canned ones). This means that if my hedgie is picky with her insects and...

    Hoping to get some advice please. A few days ago when getting Yuki out for the evening I noticed a little vomit patch in his sleeping area. It was quite small and I didnt think much of it as he's done it several times before in the past (usually whenever we tried to feed him an insect during...

    I've just found an online shop here that sells 'Zoo Med can o' products so would like to order some in to give my boy some variety as he seems to love any insect I give him :D. He's tried live superworms (including pupae and beetles), live wax worms, live dubia roaches and canned mealworms. I...

    So back in the summer I started breeding superworms as my boy absolutely loves them. I successfully bred 5 beetles and now have probably hundreds of baby superworms! ^^ I just wanted some advice to make sure I'm raising them properly so they can eventually be feeders for my hedgie and not cause...

    Warning; this is just a happy message, yet it may help others, who knows :)  So I posted a couple days ago that my male hedgehog is such a skinny boy, not interested in food at all, his biggest love is his wheel. He only weighed about 280 grams and I was having the hardest time getting him to...

    I've seen many hedgehog owners here in Japan on Instagram feed their hedgies honey worms as treats and they go crazy for them! :D so I'd like to get my little guy some but just wanted to check their nutritional value / make sure they're safe to give but haven't had much luck when searching and...
  9. General Questions
    Hi there! I'm a new hedgie owner (as of 2 months ago). I'm wondering if hedgies can attract any kinds of insects, more specifically stink bugs. I live in New England so it's snowy out, just wondering if it's a weather related issue or a hedgie thing (we've never had stink bugs before). Thanks!
  10. Mites
    hi, i'm a new hedgie owner, so i'm not familiar with this kind of problem. my hedgie, zane, is about two months old and recently i saw small brown spots on his quills. i thought it was just from the shavings, but the brown spots moved, so i'm concerned. are they mites? so far he's not losing...

    Hello, I was planning on buying waxworms, locusts and mealworms for my hedgehog and was wondering if any of these could be kept in the same container for the sake of efficiency? That's my main question but I have a couple more; I'm a little squeamish when it comes to fast-moving insects so...

    I want to buy my hedgie mealworms as a treat. I was originally going to buy freeze dried but then I read about the dangers. I'm definitely not feeding canned because of the smell and i'm worried about mealworms turning into beetles. :confused: any ideas as to what I can do? P.S. It can't...

    Hello there! I'm new to this site, but I've been skulking around for a bit without registering. I currently don't own a hedgehog, because I want to learn as MUCH as I can, and wait for the law in PA to change so that my hedgehog can be as healthy and safe as possible. On to the real question: I...
