Default Hedgy screaming!!

So I went to a exotic vet and she told me to take the hedgehog outside when its sunny so that it can get some vitamin D. But when I take him outside he screams! I get worried and take him back inside. But the vet said it's important to take him outside because his skin needs vitamin D. He only screams when hes in the sun, inside he doesn't scream? Any advice?

Him screaming:

They have sentive eyes too much light can hurt their eyes, its possible thats why hes screaming

As far as I know its not majorly imporant for them to go outside though, I may be wrong.

Hedgehogs are nocternal animals. They are active at night and sleep during the day normally hidden under something. Most do not like bright light much less bright sunlight. I wonder if the ones like yours with pink eyes may even be more light sensitive. Ours has dark eyes and does not even like the kitchen light on at night when I have her out. We have to turn the sink light on because it's not as bright. I would not think that hedgehogs would be normally be vitamin D deficiant because of their lifestile and evolution.

Hey there! It could have been eye sensitivity, as mentioned earlier. It also could have just been uncomfortableness in a new enviornment. I’ve taken my hedgies out on occasion but have never depended on it or even recommended it necessarily. I wouldn’t worry about feeling like you need to take him out, especially if he doesn’t like it!
