Hi everyone

Im from sweden so excuse my very bad spelling on english.

Im trying to learn so much about the nutritional needs for the african hedgehog.
But can someone tell me what the best % of everything a meal would have?
In fett, meet, fruts and stuff.

I have been reading some diskussions here at the forum but its much so read
so i just write som questions here and hope you all know what im looking for
and maybe have some of the answer.

To se in the hole picture: What do you think is a good meal for a african hedgehog,
and what are the correct nutritional needs for them?

I feed a mix of different cat foods, its best to mix 3-4, in my opinion. Look for dry cat foods that are around 30% protein, but under 35% protein, ALSO make sure those foods are under 15% fat. I try for 10% fat and under. Mealworms should not be a main source of food, but work well as treats. My hedgehog is not a fan of insects. DO NOT give your hedgehog a pinkie mouse, it is not something a Hedgehog should eat. Hope this helps, and best of luck to you!
