Default blacklight

I'm new here and hope I'm not posting to often if so I apologise. I have a heat lamp for Jokers cage but it puts bright light off all the time. I've found a Blak nightlight bulb (incandescent reptile lighting 75watt ) so I guess my questions are one would it keep him warm at night? And two does he need light at all at night? I would appreciate any help or thoughts.

Hedgehogs are nocturnal which means they need light during the day, and pictch black dark at night.

Your heat bublb should be a heat emmiert bulb, that produce no light as they need to be on all the time, ones like either of the bulbs in the pictures are what you need.
