    Assistance from experts on the rut

    Is this the real thing. in my back garden last night at 10:15, they were going at it for at least 15 mins before I went to bed and God knows how long after. So what are they up to, I don't even know how to sex them.

    Should be no prob to a veteran like you JAYB, just mind you don't get PRICKLY HAND!!!!

    Sexing hedgehogs!
    To sex a hedgehog, gently stroke its back until it unrolls, then (on a table) slowly roll it onto its side with the flat of the hand,
    so that the underside is visible.
    - Males have a knob of skin (penis sheath) in the middle of their tummies, towards the rear end.
    - Females: the vulva is immediately in front of the anus.

    PS. I can just Imagine you Stalking them in your Garden!!!!

    I told you not to throw that viagra out with the bird food

    Looks like two males sizing each other up to me, but I am not an expert on hedgehogs.

    I see the usual suspects turned up In all seriousness I can't ever remember seeing two adult hedgehogs together before I just thought that someone might know without me having to do a lot of research!

    Right , you can sex them in the usual when if you unroll them , they proberbly are mating but their funny ol things if they find something that smells or tastes intresting to them and go into a sort of trance sniffing and licking it , often spitting and licking themselfs i think its called self annoynting
