Friday at the Flicks - Hedgehogs

If the Hedgehog food dish is empty then it is always worth checking underneath in case anything fell through the mesh. Not the easiest thing to do when your spikes get caught in the holes.

I have seen Hedgehogs charge at each other on many occasions but this one seems to have succumbed to food rage when it caught another eating what it thought was its private stash of free food. A real Hedgehog temper tantrum as can be seen in the first half of the clip. Both ended up with a share of the food and each went its separate way in the end. The only injury seems to have been to pride.


  1. It's a wonder they don't put each others eyes out.

  2. So funny :) In the first one I thought it was going to end up having to take the dish home with it!

    In the other one it was remarkable how the aggressor came charging in at the beginning. They both had a fair whack at each other in the end though ;)

    Enjoy your weekend John.

  3. What skinny little legs they have! Great vids, John.


  4. It waa a risky charge this time Adrian. They usually charge head well down.

  5. Hello Jan. It was the first time I had seen one grab hold of another and shake it like a rag doll but obviously no serious harm done.

  6. They are skinny Wilma. It's not often you can see them at full length.


Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Any comment, or correction to any information or identification I get wrong, is most welcome. John
