Hedgehogs are small mammals belonging to the Erinaceinae family. They are related to shrews. Hedgehogs are not rodents. Because their diet in the wild is mostly on insects, they are known as insectivores. However, hedgehogs are not entirely insectivores, as they will also eat baby mice, meal worms, as well as unseasoned cooked chicken and scrambled eggs.
Hedgehogs are nocturnal and require a lot of exercise. So, having an exercise wheel (solid wheel, not wired) is essential for their health and weight. The recommended wheel is Comfort Wheel. Wodent Wheels are also a good choice.
