Tortoise and Hedgehogs?

Postby fethiyeman » Thu Jul 26, 2018 4:00 pm

Hi All,
A Hedgehog has moved in with my Tortoise !! Is there any problems with allowing this to go on?? The hedgehog is sleeping along side the tortoise.

The main one would be the blood sucking things that can also transfer to humans. Sorry I am having a senior moment after three weeks of looking after my very active grand children here in the south of France, which is hotter than the UK:0) so can't remember the blood suckers name:0(

thanks for replying Sandy, with luck it was just a tourist on a one night stay as it's gone and i can't any sign of it in the garden
just as well as those ticks can result in " Limes Disease" which could be a killer in certain parts of the country
