Diet > Food & water bowls

The material and shape of a food or water bowl plays a major role in the hygiene of the accommodation. Hedgehogs are not hygienic animals and are diggers. They can also dig under the food and water troughs and knock over the troughs if they are not heavy enough. Plastic food bowls scratch very quickly, so that dirt easily sticks to the bowls. Stone or metal containers are therefore more hygienic.
