    Will hedgehogs venture out in the snow to eat – last night it was almost freezing but i got two sightings on my camera at 11pm ad 3am before it started snowing – BUT he/she did no go in my hedgehog feeding house. There is lying snow – about 1″-2″ . Is it worth putting food out in case the want to feed


    Hi Stedwomas, Yes you should keep up the feeding. A small amount of snow is ok for them to get about. Larger amounts however are a different story. As the Hedgehog is still active, will need access to food and water. I always keep food available in winter as sometimes they will wake up for a feed.

    Hi stedwomas

    I agree with William. Definitely worth continuing to leave food (and water) out. Sometimes even there is a bit more snow they can get around on top of it once it has settled and formed a kind of ‘crust’.

    But if it’s the cold you’re worried about, they don’t seem too bothered about that as long as they can get enough food and water – although would probably welcome a hog house to shelter in and have a quick nap now and then.
