The Hedgehog is the oldest living species of mammal. The excellent

protection offered by its spines have enabled it to survive relatively well

for thousands of years. When in danger it rapidly rolls up into a ball and

extends its spines, making it almost impossible to attack. This species only

began to face serious danger in the modern age, with the introduction of

many poisonous chemicals, over-cultivated landscapes devoid of hedges,

undergrowth and piles of weeds, and excessive traffic. Hedgehogs like

undergrowth, thick hedges and piles of wood, brushwood, hay or straw,

where they can hide during the day or construct a nest. They also seek out

old boxes, or make a home for themselves under stairs or in garden sheds.

Mostly they prefer slightly neglected gardens or plots of land which have

not been sprayed with poisons and contain no slug pellets, which are fatal

for them. The Hedgehog is a nocturnal animal that goes in search of food

at dusk. They are very beneficial to us because they consume what we

consider "pests", such as Snails, Caterpillars, Beetles, young Mice, etc.

Anyone who has a Hedgehog, or a family of them, in the garden should do

everything possible to enable these useful animals to remain.

A SCHWEGLER Hedgehog Dome is ideal if you want to help the Hedgehogs

in your garden: just unpack it and place it in position, that's all you have to

do. The Hedgehog Dome offers the Hedgehog everything it needs, except

perhaps for food: a weatherproof cover, an insulated floor and soft hay in

which to hide.

» HEDGEHOG FOOD

Please never feed Hedgehogs anything containing salt, spices or sugar, i.e. avoid any leftovers from the

table. No milk! However, Hedgehogs will be grateful for some water in a shallow dish. Hedgehogs in the wild

which weigh less than 500 g at the beginning of November are unlikely to survive hibernation. It is advisable

to help them, and assistance is available from the many Hedgehog rescue centres.

By the way… many veterinary practices treat wild animals (including Hedgehogs) free of charge, but but you

should preferably enquire beforehand.

This basic food for Hedgehogs has proved its effectiveness in everyday situations. Its composition closely replicates

the natural diet of the Hedgehog. In addition to the basic components such as wild berries, nuts, fruit, meat, insects

and honey it also contains vitamins and trace elements, which are vital for Hedgehogs. It is suitable for Hedgehogs

living in the wild in summer and also provides them with the nutrition that they need during the winter. Over-wintering Hedgehogs can also be fed raw minced meat, offal, chicken giblets, fish, curds

or fruit (apples, bananas).
