    I know that hedgehogs are nocturnal but are there any times when they are more likely to be seen?


    I have three hedgehogs in my garden, two of which share the same house. Is this normal. At the moment they are both feeding together

    Hi Prof

    You might find that there are certain hogs which go to certain places at fairly regular times, but in general they could come and go any time during the night. So it’s just a question of getting to know whether any of your hog visitors do turn up at regular times.

    Hi meJules

    It isn’t normal, as such for hogs to share, but there are certain circumstances when they will. For instance they could be litter mates and still not have split up. Another possibility is that they spent part of the winter in care (i.e. maybe they were underweight) then sometimes they are kept together to try to minimise stress, so could remain together to start with. Mostly eventually the hogs will split up and seek out their own nests.
