DO NOT FEED YOUR HEDGEHOG FRUITS or VEGETABLES. Hedgehogs can’t digest cellulose (plant matter) efficiently. Feeding the African Pygmy Hedgehog fruits or veggies can put your hedgehog at risk. A breeder has a recent necropsy report on a hedgehog that died from eating strawberries! The seeds impacted the small intestine, stopped the blood supply, and killed the hedgehog.
