Mother Hedgehog and 4 Baby Hoglets at 2 Weeks Old Update - Hornbeam Wood Hedgehog Sanctuary
4 Wild Baby Hoglets and mother were rescued today from St Albans in Hertfordshire. Found under a shed while Chris (called in the rescue) was renewing a garden shed. Came in at just over 50g, now after two weeks are 150g. It's November time and the hoglets would have unlikely made it though the winter. Ideally hedgehogs need to be around 650g to have a good chance to survive the hibernating winter periods.
These hoglets will be with us until about 200g ish then they will be looked after by one of our fosterers and released back in to the wild spring next year.
