Whomever told you that was mistaken. There is a reported incident of a SUPERworm that supposedly did that, but not a MEALworm. It is perfectly healthy to feed live mealworms to your hedgehog. In addition, SUPERworms can also be feed to your hedgehog when fed properly....which is to pinch or cut off their head....or feed butt first (so the worm is dead by the time it swollows the head). I feed my hedgies a variety of live worms and bugs.

I agree with the previous posters. Live mealworms are a perfect snack for your little hedgies. If you don't grow your own make sure that you find a place that grows them responsibly. We just recently started our company and are committed to growing mealworms that we'd feel comfortable feeding our own pets.
