Do hedgehogs have to be fed bugs? I have read at pets supplies plus that hedgehogs are Insectivorous or at least African Pygmy Hedgehogs are.

I think that as long as you are feeding your hedgehog a good quality food you don't have to feed bugs. Bugs are treats in a pet hedgehogs diet. My hedgehog is afraid of them. :lol: However you should wait for more answers. I'm not sure how much about hedgehog nutrition I actually know, I've been very wrong before.

As long as you are feeding a good mix of 3 good quality cat foods(off of Reaper's list), then treats are not a real necessity.

You don't have to feed bugs, but I love feeding mealies because of how much my boy loves it. However, there are a few here who refuses to even touch the mealies.

Instead of bugs, you can also try giving some chicken or seafood as a treat as well. My boy LOVES seafood.
