    Extended legs? Silly question

    Does it have meaning when your hedgehog extends its legs. I mean I guess like the tummy will be higher up and they walk a little taller. I am not referring to stretching unless this is a way that they stretch. Idk but it's so cute when he makes his legs look long and I just wanted to ask incase there is something I need to be aware of.

    Fox attacked hedgehog

    Wild fox attacked wild hog in (UK) garden recently, we have a hog house and we feed. What is best way to avoid this again? Is feeding hogs causing more harm than good?

    Can we feed a hedgehog some baby giant african millipedes?

    Hi, not a hedgie owner but I work with one. We had a breeding colony of Giant African millipedes dumped on us and I was wondering if the babies are safe hedgie food. I thought they were poisonous but google gives me mixed results on feeding them out.

    Thank you!

    How can I bond with my new friend?

    I recently just got my first hedgehog buddy. she’s just a baby so we have many years to spend together but I was curious, is there any ways we can bond more so she’s more comfortable with me?
