Hedgehogs are omnivores, meaning they will eat foods from both plant and animal origins to meet their nutritional needs. Brown's ZOO-Vital Hedgehog diet is formulated to meet the unique protein and energy requirements of pet hedgehogs. This nutritionally balanced diet is in a crunchy form that aids in reducing tooth tartar. Vegetables, fruits and legumes have been added to increase palatability and fulfill the hedgehogs' natural foraging behavior. Plus, we've added freeze-dried mealworms which are prized delicacies of hedgehogs. Beneficial bacteria have also been added to support healthy digestion.
