Home Forums Hedgehog signs and sightings Does anyone have any ADULT hogs visiting which are not hibernating? Reply To: Does anyone have any ADULT hogs visiting which are not hibernating?


Yes , as mentioned a few days ago, we have one adult, in good healthy conditon. It had started to hibernate on the 12th December and then last week it awoke, had a few ticks which rapidly fell off, and now the animal is eating well at 19.30, 20,30, 23,00, 03.00 as recorded on the cameras.

On the same day a juvenile [300 g] was wandering around I rescued that one.

The next day, another different adult was seen about a kilometer away [whilst the first was seen feeding] so we have at least two, and it would seem a general awakening maybe is on the way, which is not unreasonable goven the temperatures and general weather.

We constanstantly monitor, and always have food and water available
