Default Litter box training an older hedgehog?

Would it be difficult to litter box train a hedgehog that is already 1 1/2 years old? I'm not sure if I should try it or not.

Just know that most hogs don't actually litter train, but they go in the litter box under their wheel.

Hedgehogs aren't so much "trained" to go in a specific place, some of them just do it. Putting a tray under the wheel will catch the run-off of poop and pee. They have a prey-species instinct to not go where they sleep, so you can take advantage of that with where you position the wheel/tray and the sleeping spot. A lot of hedgehogs will be pretty good at it - most of ours are about 90% - but it depends on the individual.
