Great! Please don’t give them nuts as this can cause brittle bone disease. Hedgehogs need food with a phosphor – calcium rate of 1;1 or 1:2. Nuts and a lot of the cat/dog foods also are poor on this rate. We used to give them minced meat 50% with added pulverised eggshell (one tip of a knife for each 100 gram) mixed with 50% cat food for all the nutrions. Have fun with the camera!
