are too small to survive hibernation.

carrying enough fat to last thru the winter.
Hibernation usually begins around November and ends
Hedgehogs normally wake up several times over winter
and often build a new nest.
They can travel 1-2km
each night - males more than females.
They return to
the same day-time nest for a few days then use
another, perhaps returning to an old nest at a later
