Default Noises when sleeping?

We have noticced that when our Hedgehog Brillo is sleeping lately he makes a chriping/squeaking/ noise. We are not sure how long it has been going on as we have recently moved his cage from winter room to his summer room. We had him in an extra room to control the heat better in the winter. Anyway are the noises just him dreaming or something?
Thanks in advance for your help

From what I've read, its not uncommon (but not common either) for a hedgehog to make noises while they sleep, such as you've described. Most are quiet, but kind of like humans, every so often you get one who talks in their sleep.

Thanks For your reply. We have had Brillo over a year, he didn't make these noises when we got him. I guess we all make different noises when we get older

Adults tend to be more noisy sleepers than babies and often snoring comes as they become elderly. Sometimes snoring or sleep noises are a symptom of illness, tumour in the head or nasal passages and even allergies can cause noisy sleeping. Like humans, snoring or noises is often individual to the hedgehog.

Our Lily was very vocal when sleeping and would make all kinds of whimpers, whines, squeaks, squeals and screeches. Their room is on the second floor and we often could hear her on the main level.

Riley chirps a lot. The squeak sound other times reminds me of a low-tone dog toy squeaker, it is really weird. I've checked on him when it first happened and he's sound asleep. I've tried to record it but am not quick enough.

Chirp chirp!

Quigley makes this funny chirp that sounds like crying to me. I always want to scoop him up and make him feel better. He also hisses a lot in his sleep, I think he's having nightmares about bath time.

My girl squeeks, chips & 'eats' mealies while sleeping. She's also a snorer, though that has decreased accompanying her weight loss
