The Hedgehog Diet should make up at least 50% of your animal’s intake. Hedgehogs will
consume 1-3% of bodyweight per day. Food intake will vary due to growth rate, activity,
environmental temperature, and life stage. For example:
For a 10 oz (300 g) hedgehog: 2-3 teaspoons (4-6 g)
For a 1.5 lb (700 g) hedgehog: 1-3 tablespoons (7-21 g)
Always feed along with fresh clean water.
Soaking Hedgehog Diet in water may help transition animals that are used to soft/moist diets.
After 1-2 weeks on a soaked diet, slowly transition to using less water and eventually offer a dry diet.
