Home Forums Hedgehog signs and sightings Odd feeding habits Reply To: Odd feeding habits


Hedgehog feeding habits never cease to amaze me. I have seen them do their “business” in the food dish and then proceed to eat from it. They’ve also moved their food dish several yards across the lawn but not eaten any of it. Sometimes they will eat the lot, other times they will throw the food everywhere but hardly eat any at all. I even watched one once that sat and looked at the food for nearly ten minutes and then walked off as if in a huff “i’m not eating that muck”.

They all have one thing in common though, they will never EVER say thank you.
