Home Forums Hedgehog signs and sightings Are my hogs too small? Reply To: Are my hogs too small?


Hi there, i live in Scotland and i found a small hog weighing 498g and was told by my local wildlife rescue centre that they need to weigh roughly 600 grams in October to be able to survive this winter hibernation.. so please call your local wildlife rescue and get him the help he may need my friend because i was told under 600 grams there was a high chance he wint survive, and im sure you dont want that to happen to this wee hog… let us know how you get on with thos hog and the wildlife rescue will return the hedgehog to your garden if you have a feeding place and a wee hime for him to sleep… Good luck!!
