Default Hedgehogs go outside?

I will be getting a hedgehog in mid december and want to know if on a WARM day I could take him outside? Like in Summer. I just want to know so I dont make a bad decision or mistake. I would let him/her go outside in the exercise pen, or just let it run free VERY supervised of course. I just know that the temperatures for it have to be between 74-80. So do you think it would be ok on WARM days only? Thanks!

Some people will suggest letting hedgies out in a clean, supervised area, and some will say to keep them inside. I let my boy out in the grass once in a while, and he enjoys it. You have to be very careful they don't eat any bugs, which could have ingested poison, or have parasites, make sure nothing bites them, etc.

Thanks! That would be such a wonderful treat for him. I'll make sure he/she wont eat any bugs and I'll rake it up a lot so she/he wont find anything! Thanks so much!

Always use an exercise pen. Hedgehogs can run very fast.
