Thank you for those identification tips Nic, I read them in the other post and it will really help with spotting more subtle differences in similar looking Hogs.

Hedgie Lover I have similar concerns about one of my regular hogs that seems to scratch constantly, nearly every few inches. I asked in the carers part of the forum (‘itchy and scratchy hog’ thread) and was told it is a common thing, but to be on the lookout for fly strike or signs of distress. My hog doesn’t seem distressed and is eating, drinking and foraging around the garden just fine.

I keep the feeding station clean to ensure minimal transmission of parasites which can help.
