Hi Sam1404

I should have said ‘hoglets are not all full adult size when they hibernate the first year’. Some of the earlier born ones might be. But many of them are only just over 450g, which still looks fairly small compared to the adults. Although, the adults can vary quite a bit in size as well. But, yes, the hoglets do grow quite quickly when they’re small.

Just a word of warning. Some hoglets can look a lot like each other when they’re small. Their markings tend to develop a bit as they grow. I usually find if I have one hoglet visit, before long there will be more. I’m not always sure there are 2 until I see them together. Fingers crossed – always good to hear about lots of hoglets!
