African Hedgehog Tip

In captivity, hedgehogs – which can live up to 8 years – are likely to put on weight, so keep your pet on a high-protein/low-fat regimen. Feed the animal in the evening – their most active time – and be sparing with snacks during the day. Leave fresh water in the cage in a shallow bowl; sipper bottles can be difficult for the animals to manage.
