Thread: Mealworm dispute

    Mealworm dispute

    So I've been told to feed my hedgehog no more than 3 - 4 mealworm a day but after speaking to other owners and doing a bit of research the amounts seem to vary from this, it seems a lot of owners say that its okay to feed them up to 20 mealworm a day.

    How much should I be feeding my hedgehog?

    Hedgehogs only have a stomach the size of a grape so 20 mealworms a day would be too much.

    I thought that 20 seemed a little excessive. is 3 - 4 correct?

    I would stick with 1-2/ day. Meal worms provide a decent amount of fiber, but that's about it.
