I have a question, do hedgies ever eat their own poop? I'm in the middle of cleaning out Quillma's cage and I removed her food, then I heard her crunching on something.. I dont remember leaving any food at the bottom of her cage but I suppose there could be a bite or two of cat food, but this got me wondering, do hedgehogs ever eat their own poop?

Yes. Someone posted on here a while ago that their hedgehog was eating poop one of the responses was that females eat the poop to clean the nest when they have a litter. Other than that I know that it's a sign of nutritional deficit in other animals (except rabbits).
