The temperature needs to vary by no more than a couple of degrees in the entire cage. This means you may need to have more than one CHE for the cage. You want the temperature to be around 76-78*F, starting out at 80 is pretty high for most hedgehogs. You can also cover the sides of the cage to help keep the heat in.
