Home Forums Hedgehog signs and sightings Too early for hibernation? Reply To: Too early for hibernation?


I have had a very large hog visiting every night since spring. For a short time there was a hoglet and a smaller, presumably female, hog. Recently I have only seen the larger hog but in the last week hardly any food has been taken and the last 2 nights none at all. I am hoping she / he has gone into hibernation now. I will follow the advice to keep a snack and some water available and hope they reappear in the spring 🤞.
