the world's first high quality, insect based hedgehog food

made with love

I have been an active member of the pet hedgehog community since 2007. I began in education and rescue for 5 years while owning my first hedgehog, Inky. I had the opportunity to begin a small breeding program in addition to my rescue work in 2012. I am currently working on the 3rd edition of my book Pet African Hedgehogs - A Complete Guide to Care. My educational background is in Animal Sciences, Sustainability, and Business - a perfect combination with experience with hundreds of hedgehogs, and an intimate familiarity with the struggles of providing a healthy, properly balanced diet. I am so excited to be able to provide our community with a high quality, specialized food for our hedgehogs.
It's about time!

Which Formula to Feed?

Weight Control Formula

Formulated for adult hedgehogs. Ideal for adults who are overweight or at risk of becoming overweight, as well as healthy adults who consume additional foods like insects which provide a good source of fat.

Short answer: Most hedgies 400g and up.

Order Weight Control

Standard Formula

Intended for most adults, but especially those that aren't getting / won't eat other supplemental insects / meat / egg etc. This is what I recommend switching to at appx 3 mo, depending on how babies are growing. If you’re feeding other quality foods like whole insects, consider our Weight Control formula. If your baby is still under 300 grams, consider staying on our High Calorie formula.

Order Standard

High Calorie Formula

Formulated for all life stages. Intended for baby hedgehogs (typically up to 3 months), pregnant/nursing mothers, very active adults, and older adults who have trouble keeping weight on.

Short answer: Babies, moms, and most adults under 300g.
