Environmental enrichment is essential for the health and well-being of our pets. Hedgehogs are especially interesting and adorable pets that have become popular throughout America.
They are very active and need lots of exercise to avoid becoming obese in captivity. Here is a quick and inexpensive dig box to enrich your hedgie's environment and encourage "natural" foraging behavior and exercise.
Step 1: Supplies
You will need:
An appropriate sized container (Tupperware), I chose a clear one so I can watch the hedgie play
An exacto knife (or other cutting implement). As always use caution!
Fleece (about 1.5 yards for the container in this instructable)
Mealworms (or your hedgie's favorite bug that won't be able to escape the container)
~ 10 minutes of your life
A Hedgie, because there wouldn't be much point otherwise...
