Hoglets often come into us weak, dehydrated and very sick. They need specialist feeding at all times. They also need to be kept at a warm temperature.
Often weaning mothers will go out during the day to forage and leave their babies for a while and you may hear the babies call out to her as she returns. If a mother does not return or the babies are making constant high pitched squealing sounds there is a problem.
If mum is injured or ill then both mum and babies need help.
Babies leave the nest with mum at about 100gms, at this time they wander around learning survival skills with their mother.
