Close fronted wheels like that aren't recommended for hedgehogs for a couple of reasons. First the closed front hold the urine and feces in and doesn't allow any of it to drain off while the hedgehog is running. Secondly hedgehogs often jump on and off their wheel while it's still turning and the openings often hit them when they do this.
