hedgehogs are not rodents and need to be cared for, and fed, completely differently. Hedgehogs should be fed high quality, low protien, cat food. Hedgehog foods that are sold in pet stores are not good for hedgehogs and some are even dangerous. Its good you asked here before feeding the blocks to your hedgehog. You might want to read over the forum as much as possible so you can learn to best take care of you new friend.

As previously stated, absolutely NOT. I do hope you know hedgies are not rodents... a hedgie couldn't physically eat lab blocks anyhow, they'd have to bite at them like you would a giant ice block.

Lab blocks are basically ground soy and corn, which is the opposite of what hedgies need.
