    Default Hedgehogs: Male hogs can try to bully others but sometimes not to plan

    Sometimes hedgehogs can be bullies but occasionally that might go wrong. This video is taken from our wildlife camera last night. With sound turned up you should hear one of the two hedgehogs "huffing". They do this to try to put off the other hedgehog and show displeasure at what it is doing. Sometimes it doesn't all go to plan for the hedgehog bully.

    Thanks @chrissy for this entertaining video of "buffalo". It reminds me of a corrida

    @Yazeh you're welcome but thankfully he didn't kill the other hedgehog.

    In fact we thought more about this and wondered if "Buffalo" might be "the daddy" because we know the female hedgehog (on the left) is pregnant as we've watched her making a nest in her home in the garden. Maybe he didn't like the other male sniffing around his gal?

    Thanks for giving the context. If I put a wildlife camera in our neck of the wood, I would probably see how the raccoon enters the gardens, opens the garbage can and try to fish out the inedible, burnt Viennoiserie or how our cat manages to escape (despite all precautions) to party at the neighbour's despite her curfew

    They aren't too expensive on Amazon. We bought our during one of the offer days. They are quite heavy on battery use so we stopped putting it out for a while during winter when the hedgehogs were hibernating.
    We tried using it when we knew a rat was getting in and we found out where it exited. That helped in the placement of the traps.
