HIBERNATION - Hedgehogs will hibernate once the night temperatures are consistently below 5 degrees and we are getting regular frosts. The minimum weight for hibernation is 450g which would be at the stated weather conditions, as rescue we do prefer them to be heavier (at least 500g-600g).

During the autumn if the weather is mild we will not admit hedgehogs just on their weight, we prefer to keep them in the wild for as long as we can.  Any hedgehogs found out in the day at this time of year will need help.    

For information on when a hedgehog needs help, please see our Found A Hedgehog page 



We could could not do what we do without the support and dedication of our vet team at Woodlands Vets
