Home Forums Hedgehog signs and sightings Hedgehog not hibernating Reply To: Hedgehog not hibernating


I’m in Eastchurch Kent. It’s reassuring that I’m not the only one with a hedgehog still awake. He or she is still visiting every night. We are monitoring the little one byway of a trail camera. He or she is a good size and looks in good condition. This happened last year but by mid January the hedgehog did go down. This year this one is showing no signs of wanting to hibernate. Yet the others have. I always continue putting food and water out throughout the winter months. I feed them with chicken cat food in jelly, a few meal worms, a small amount of fresh chicken, a little cheese and he likes a couple of slices of banana and a small handful of cat munchies. By the morning most has gone. I think this hedgehog may have been a late baby.

I have normally gone over to dry food at this time of year but as yet will continue as usual.
