The number I give varies depending on the hedgehog. If I have a hedgehog that needs to lose weight, I give less, if I have one that needs extra calories I give more. My 2 right now are getting 5 a night. Both seem to use up the calories running all night long.

You don't want to free feed mealworms, and may need to limit them if your hedgehog tends to gain weight easily. My two happen to be fine with this number. If I reduce the mealworms for them they lose weight.

If they eat too many at once, you may find a green stool the next day. But any sudden change can cause that.
