Default Bringing home a hedgie. :)

Hi everyone, well I am getting an african pygmy hedgehog soon, (I'm not sure when yet.) I have done my research and I have my cage, liners, bowls, some hand warmers (to keep him warm) and a play ball. I was wondering if someone would be able to give me a Full list of everything else I will need for my hedgie, not just when I bring him home but all the things I will need so I don't have to run around trying to buy things as soon as I need them. I hope this makes sense and I hope you all have great day!
Thank you all,
Crystal x

Did you mention another heat source than the hand warmers? I am not sure if I missed it. You need the temperature of the air to be 73 to 78 degrees.

CHE/deep 10" heat lamp and thermostat. Day lamp with timer and of course the cat food mix. Also some aveeno for bathing.

You'll also need a thermometer to monitor the temperature of the cage. Also, buy stock in paper towels lol.

Shampoo isn't okay.

You'll want to use an oatmeal wash, dawn dish soap, or oil to bathe them in.
