Treats for your Hedgehog

Many owners and breeders give their hedgehogs treats for a variety of reasons, whether is be to get them to unroll, because they did something good, because they can't eat hard food, because they just had a bath, or even because the owner want to distract the hog while they cut its toes.

Their are many treats you can feed your hedgehog, and each hog has its personal favorites, just like humans.
Some treats include insects, cooked eggs, cooked chicken, baby food, fruits, vegetables and even soft cat foods.
Some treats are better for your hedgehog than others, but as for hedgehogs being picky creatures, you rarely have a choice about what they will and won't eat, and their opinions of treats often change rapidly.
