Hi Nic, Yes, we definitely have two hedgehogs as we caught them having a punch up on camera. I think the smaller one might be picking on the larger one.

Yes, hubby was upset that he disturbed the hog but we were so convinced we only had one hog only to find we had two! No harm appears to have been done though as the hibernating hog is now awake and has plenty of food and water to make up for any weight loss.

We have another hedgehog house that has a lid and one is in there now (don’t intend to keep peeking but it is good to know who is where). During breeding and birthing season we would stop the peeking.

One thing we have learnt from using the wildlife camera is how important water is to hedgehogs. Even if people don’t want to feed hedgehogs it would be great if they could leave a container of water for hogs to drink.
