This wicker Igloo Hedgehog Home is designed to be an attractive house and a safe retreat for hedgehogs. It is constructed using a round painted steel frame with a waterproofed roof which is covered with a brush wood finish. It is designed to blend into the garden.
The igloo is spacious and can accomodate family groups and the entrance tunnel is designed to provide protection from predators such as badgers and dogs. The Igloo hedgehog house is predominately designed for shelter but may also be used during hibernation if additional garden waste is provided as cover.
Siting: choose a quiet position out of the prevailing wind in an area with some nearby cover (areas of the garden with slugs - a natural food source).
Please note this product no longer comes with the free food and field guide.
