All the hedgehog droppings I

All the hedgehog droppings I see are rather runny! More like melted tar! But there looks to be bug remains in this one so you are probalby right.

Hedgehog

Hedgehog droppings can be more solid, as with this one, when they have been feeding mainly on insects with hard cases. They are runny if their main diet has been fruit or soft bodied invertebrates, for example earthworms and slugs.
