We were recently visited by a hedgehog who was brought in injured by a strimmer! Here he is after some well deserved TLC

Here are some facts about Hedgehogs…

They are lactose intolerant

They are nocturnal

They feed their babies for up to 8 weeks

They have to be around 600g to hibernate

They will eat cat and dog food (NOT fishy flavours though)

They are pregnant for 35 days

The baby hogs are called Urchins

85% of hogs have lungworm

The hedgehog flea can’t live on a dog, cat or human!
