Default Why Is My Hedgehog Doing This?

Hi all!

I have a question about my hedgehog. My hedgehog's temporary cage has a food and water bowl, a pillow case for him to sleep on and a mat as a liner. My question is, why is my hedgehog going under the mat? Isn't is bad for the hedgehog? All help is very much appreciated.

Hedgehogs just do that sometimes. It's not bad for them. They like to burrow and if they have nothing else to burrow under, under the liner they go!

Hedgehogs need a place to hide because they are prey animals. If they can't hide, they'll find something to hide under, the mat for example. Snuggle sacks, which you can buy online or make yourself, or plastic igloos from the pet store are popular

On a side note, please make sure all seams on the inside of pillow case are hidden, as the threads can get caught around their toes and cut off circulation.
