Thank you! Yes, I have an account there as well although I’m not that active.
I notice you use tweezers. Would he eat it if you gave it to him by hand?
Yes he would, the only reason I use tweezers is so he doesn’t accidentally bite me when my hand smells like food.
Týr never liked crickets for some reason, but he’s starting to warm up to them. At first he tried to gobble them down as quick as possible, while foaming a lot (anointing) so he kept throwing half of the cricket back up but it seems he’s learning how to properly eat them. Also, he loves the tweezers.
Congrats! Please do, I’d love to see them!
Do you have a thermometer in the cage? That way you’ll always know the exact temperature. I use a CHE (ceramic heat emitter), I don’t really like heating pads since they only heat the floor of the cage and not the air, which is what hedgehogs need. They can make the hedgehog less active; some hedgehogs want to stay on the heating mat ‘cause the rest of the cage is colder. They also overheat quite easily and can cause burns to your hedgie, so be careful!
