- Hedgehog Food should be at least 50% of your pet's dietary intake. Insects, vegetables, and fruits should be less than 50% of the total diet, high sugar items should be limited to less than 5%. Daily consumption is typically 1-3% of bodyweight. Food intake will vary based on growth rate, activity, environmental temperatures, and life stage. For example:
- A 10 oz (300 g) hedgehog may eat 2-3 teaspoons (4-6 g) daily
- A 1.5 lb (700 g) hedgehog may eat 1-3 tablespoons (7-21 g) daily
- Soaking pellets in water may help transition hedgehogs that are used to eating soft/moist diets. After 1-2 weeks on a soaked diet, slowly transition to less water and eventually offer a dry diet.
