Hope this helps 🙂
Wow yea that's a good point that never even occurred to me. I'll definitely have to do some experimenting to make sure the climbing aspects would work out for her. And, looking back the cage you posted, even though its not my preferred style, that could totally work and it has all the space for her. I'll definitely have to continue my research and look further into it.[IMG class=inlineimg]https://www.hedgehogcentral.com/forums/images/smilies/icon_e_biggrin.gif[/IMG]
One tip too is just to re angle the ramp so that it’s not as steep. Some hedgehogs won’t even try to climb if the ramp is too steep. And adding a textured lining to the ramp helps them catch a grip.
