Hi everyone. I'm new to this forum as I'm getting my hedgie in about a week! I wanted to buy mealworms to feed my hedgehog as a daily treat and I have read that alive ones are the healthiest for them. However, they are gross both for me to grab and for my family to keep on the fridge. In my country I can't get canned ones but they sell dried ones for birds as well. I know they can cause impaction but on the package it says that you can rehydrate the dried mealworms by placing them on hot water for 5 minutes. So my question is, if I rehydratate the mealworms, will they be healthy for my hedgehog? If alive ones are so much better I guess I can convince my parents... :-?
