I'm being very thick here but i know the hedgie needs 12-14hrs of light a day but i've also heard that sometimes when you play with them it should be dark so they are less scared. does that mean the lights should be on all day while i'm at work and then turned off at night when i get home?

should i follow a day/night cycle like we have?

Default Re: Lighting

That is pretty much what you are supposed to do Just make sure that the light cycle stays consistent. If it shortens, some hedgies may attempt to hibernate, thinking winter is coming
