Welcome! Be sure to check out all the sections of the forum and read through the stickies. Here are some basics...
-must be kept at 74-78 degrees
-cage must be 4 sq feet
- feed cat food with less than 15% fat and about 30% protein
- a wheel with a solid surface must be provided at all times
- a light must be on 12-14 hours of the day
- hedgehogs must be kept alone
- must be taken out of cage for atleast 30 minutes a day

There is much more, that's just stuff off the top of my head.
