Some times a couple of juvenile hedgehogs meet at the feeder and, with some caution, manage to eat without any problems.
Other times it seems to be a case of instant dislike and the pushing and shoving begins.
I have never seen them try to bite each other which would be quite a problem with all those spines and their little teeth. They just charge and push until one decides that discretion is the better part of valour leaving the victor to the spoils.
After there being a hog in the hedgehog house four days running it has been empty these past two days. Maybe it gets too hot in the present above average temperatures. It is probably more comfortable under a hedge with a bit of cooling breeze.
