Today I bought my Hedgehog a box of live crickets. He is a fan of Meal worms so I thought I would try him with a new treat! But he showed no interest in the insect huffing whenever it jumped near him so I killed the cricket & placed it in a bowl with a meal worm but still no interest in the cricket but he gobbled up the meal worm happily??

Crickets pose too much of challenge for some hedgehogs... mine prefer mealworms, especially dried ones.
I have the same problem with some of my lizards too... and they're supposed to like them, but nope!

I tried live and freezer-killed crickets with my hedgie with no luck. he just ignored them. I had to smoosh them so he could smell the insides and recognize it as food. He loves crickets now, as long as they're pre-squashed.
