Home Forums Hedgehog signs and sightings Difference between a male and female hedgehog? Reply To: Difference between a male and female hedgehog?


I’m even MORE confused than ever now, I have to say!! LOL!

We understood our recently injured Hog ( Florence..! Now Herb!! ) was a Female.. but seemingly not, after it’s week long stay at the Hogpital!!

Going by what I’ve ‘learned’ so far.. last night’s footage suggests that the larger female comprehensively ‘biffed’ our smaller male the full length of the pitch & back..!! ( scratches head, still unsure about any of it all ! ) ..confused further by the fact we have a 3rd Hog that also visits occasionally..!!

Either way, they all seem to be happy healthy Hogs – can’t ask for more than that!!
