Default Sleeps a lot

Hey everyone,

General question -

My hedgie Ollie is only 3 months and sleeps during the night sometimes. Is that normal even though they're nocturnal? I'm assuming the are like newborns and just sleep alot during the first couple months.

This is perfectly normal. Just like human babies (which require naps during the day), hedgie babies need the extra sleep to make up for all the energy it takes to grow and run around like crazy.
