    Hi Bala

    That’s good news if the hogs have been mating. Fingers crossed for some hoglets. In answer to your question, it’s possible the same ones. i.e. it’s possible they looked as if they were mating but weren’t actually, or something else went wrong and the female did not become pregnant. Hedgehogs are apparently fairly promiscuous and will mate with more than one male. It has been reported that some litters even have more than one Father. So it’s possible also that one was the same and the other a different one. It would be nice if you have two females around.

    Good luck and happy hog watching.
