Hi again Dizzydog

I love that the hog has been adding lavender to it’s nest! You are so lucky your hog house has been used. He could be a male, but some females can get quite big too.

Re. the feeding. Out of that lot, I would stick to the cat biscuits and food, especially if they like it, because, although not as bad as mealworms, peanuts and sunflower hearts don’t have a brilliant Calcium/phosphorous ratio either and suet pellets could be too fatty.

If you are getting the ‘Hedgehogs’ book, try to look out for a new version. When I got mine, there were still various older revisions for sale. Mine was revised edition 2014, but someone told me they thought there might be a newer revision now.
