Annual and seasonal food composition of 165 long eared hedgehog Hemiechinus auritus collaris (Gray, 1830) studied from their stomach contents revealed that the main diet composed of insects (47.4% by number method and 39.74% by weight method). Beetles constituted more than 75% of the insect food. Oligochaetes, amphibians, reptiles and mammals also occurred in low proportion (7-10%). It appears that the food of the hedgehogs is related to the availability of the prey.
