Home Forums Hedgehog signs and sightings Strange Markings Reply To: Strange Markings


About 8 weeks ago my video showed a hedgehog with strange round, black (would be at night) marks which almost looked like a dog bite. I sent it to my local rescue centre for advice. It was a large hog and looked very healthy. The rescue centre suggested the marks may be ticks but to keep an eye on it. Over the next few weeks the marks faded and hog still very healthy. Of course one never knows how many hogs are visiting but this definitely showed fading marks. hog devotee
